Is It A Ministry Or A Job?


If you are doing it because no one else will, it’s a job. If you are doing it to serve the Lord, it’s a ministry.

If you are doing it just well enough to get by, it’s a job. If you are doing it to the best of your ability, it’s a ministry.

If you will do it only so long as it does not interfere with other activities, it’s a job. If you are committed to staying with it, even when it means letting go of other things, it’s a ministry.

If you quit because no one praised you or thanked you, it’s a job. If you stay with it even when no one seems to notice, it’s a ministry.

If you do it because someone else said it needed to be done, it’s a job. If you do it because you are convinced it needs to be done, it’s a ministry.

It’s hard to get excited about a job. It is almost impossible NOT to get excited about a ministry.

People may say, “Well done,” when you do your job. The Lord will say, “Well done!”  when you complete your ministry.

An average church is filled with people doing jobs. A great church is filled with people involved in ministry.
