Volunteers Needed

July 21, 2010

In the 1st Century church there were no professionals. If we are not careful we will assume that only paid or professional clergy can do the job. That is simply not true. Most of our churches would fold without volunteers.

Another problem is our emphasis on excellence when interpreted to mean “only professionals needed”. The Bible says to work “as unto the Lord” and do what you do “with all your heart”. We can still serve the Lord even though we may not feel “qualified” by the world’s or unfortunately the “church” standard.

These thoughts were prompted by my reading this morning: “Why Good is Good Enough” at this website: http://www.pastors.com/blogs/ministrytoolbox/archive/2010/07/14
