Friday Focus: come with it…….

Friday Focus: Come with it……

Psalm 103:1 At the end of a powerful church service when the congregation goes home feeling empowered, the man of God comes from the platform, more often than not; drained. Feeling the need to be refreshed he looks to his team members to encourage him or her.

“When the last prayer has been prayed and the person has been ministered to, who will minister to the minister?”-The Spirit of Armorbearing, Earma Brown.

There is nothing worse than having to “pump-up” your OWN cheering section which is why I say “be that minister that brings it”!

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits. Psalm 103:1 ESV.

Your Spiritual leader has now passed the baton to the Body of believers. Where most would go on with out thought you see you Pastor needing to be refreshed. This is where you should be at your best to minister. not the time to have counseling.  Serve them with a song in your heart, a smile on your face and gentleness in your spirit.  All fruit of the spirit should be concentrated as you redeem your man or woman of God’s time by taking care of the little things so that our Pastor can spend time with his family. This is not the time where you need to critique his/her message. Nor is it the time to shout from the roof tops of how great of a communicator he is please, just listen to them and tend to what they need. There will be time to honor your pastor but directly at the end of his ministry is not the time. You should be listening and attending to what he or she requires; even anticipate his or her needs with time. Set the atmosphere so that your Pastor can be refreshed. They will thank you for it!

Friday Focus

In the spirit of blogging I am attempting a new project. It will be called ” Friday focus” and the intent would be to focus on serving the ones who serve highlighting a focus of servant leadership. This weeks focus is on the call of leadership.

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31 KJV)

If God be for us, than who cam be against us? Too often the question comes to the forefront of I am not able to carry out the task of _________. You get the idea. “I don’t think I’m able to support my pastor,” or “I don’t think I’m ready to begin ministry,” How can I lead? “. Well the answer lies in these words penned over two thousand years ago.

I want to share that apart from Christ, we can do nothing ………. That means nothing , NO thing, projects that have been completed without the leading and direction of his holy inspiration will come to ruin in time. This is why, in my opinion many “on fire leaders” soon burn out as a result of an unbalanced life style. But that is another focus.

I have a tool box at home and each tool has a function, even the brake bleeder kit with its rustic blend of hose and jar with a coat hanger to compliment the home manufactured asset. Each tool is designed for use to assist in the production of the end item. By it self it can’t do anything but in the hands of a mechanical ninja. It can breakdown or build. These tools have been designed for the challenges it will face and much like a butter knife it can be made versatile for other uses.

We can be referred to as tools in God’s tool box. Tools that can produce or destroy. In the hands of the master mechanic we can do many things but failure is not on the list. If The Lord who called you formed you and designed you for the purpose that only you can do, then what things can try to come against or better yet win against the armies of God. You are unstoppable because of Christ who lives and lives inside your heart. Because of whose you are you are able to do greater things that have been recorded in history why? Because you are a tool, used by God. When you belong to his toolbox you’re not alone you have other tools that can help bring change, to find hurts and heal them. And with a team that strong, who can win against you.

So as services begin and the people need a word. Know that you are not alone but part of a team. And we are behind you in your service to The Lord, together who can be against us.

What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? (Romans 8:31 KJV)
