"I am only a volunteer."

I heard someone say recently, “Pastor, I am only a volunteer.”  No!!!  A thousand times NO!!!  No where will you find that concept in the Bible.  I’ve looked.  It is not there!

So then what am I?  “You are a minister.”  Romans 12:1 teaches us to offer to God our entire lives because this is our “act of worship.”  That means every single Christ-follower is a FULL-TIME MINISTER.  Every moment of our lives is an opportunity for ministry.

Are you a member of our host team?  You are called!  PointKids?  You are called!  Set-Up/Tear-Down?  You are called!  Hospitality?  You are called!  Music Team?  You are called!  A/V Team?  You are called!  MOPS?  You are called!  Pointmen?  You are called!

Our team is not filled with “only volunteers” we are filled with ministers!  Hey, we get to work for the best boss in all the world – God, Himself!  Wow!  What a privilege!!!!
