The Encouragement of Faithfulness
Earlier this week, Savannah and I were in central Virginia at a meeting. As we got to sit down with the pastor after the service, it was so encouraging to hear about his church. The pastor explained that around 70% of the church members were involved in at least one ministry around the church. This number was a HUGE encouragement to me.
The more and more American culture gets away from God, the less involved people tend to be. Sadly, this mentality seems to have spilled into the church. Deputation has been such an encouragement as we have had the privilege of traveling to churches and seeing that a premium is still put on faithfulness to God.
You never know when your faithfulness to our Savior is going to be a blessing to someone else. None of those church members knew that the pastor told me that. They were simply serving God, and they have no idea how much that testimony blessed me.
Galatians 6:9-10 “And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.”
