Is it a Job or is it a Ministry?


Some people have a JOB in the church, others involve themselves in a MINISTRY. What is the difference?

If your concern is success, it is a JOB. If your concern is faithfulness, it is a ministry.

An average church is filled with people doing a JOB. A great church is filled with people who are involved in MINISTRY.

If you quit because no one ever praised you or thanked you, it was a job. If you stay with it even though no one notices, it is MINISTRY.

If you will do it only as long as it doesn’t interfere with your activities, it is a JOB. If you are committed to staying with it even when it means letting go of other things, it is MINISTRY.

If you quit because someone criticized you, it was a JOB. If you kept serving, it was a MINISTRY.

If you are doing it well enough to get by, it is a JOB. If you are doing it to the best of your ability, it is a MINISTRY.

If you are doing it because no one else will, it is a JOB. If you are doing it to serve the Lord, it is a MINISTRY.
