A friend showed me this video yesterday.
It just goes to show God uses all kinds of people. Sinners and saints alike, God doesn’t always call the ‘qualified’.
Sometimes we over-think where and how we ought to be serving others. Maybe you need a little push to obey God’s call to serve others? Consider this that push.
You don’t need to begin by leading a small group. Start with those God has placed around you right now. Serve your spouse, children, parents, and siblings. Pray with and for them. Ask them about their walk with Christ and trials they may be facing. Send them a note with your favorite passage of Scripture.
Beyond your family, serve your neighbors, co-workers, and friends. Something as simple as sending them a “Thinking of you” card with an encouraging note or bringing them some homemade goodies is a easy way to start.
And if you belong to a local church, be sure to plug in and use the gifts God has given you to bless the body, of which he has made you a member. Ask your pastor where they might need some extra help. Try different things. Find a ministry that aligns with your passions and abilities and give it a go. Perhaps God will even call you to start a new ministry.
