Commitment to the Church

So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith. (Galatians 6:10)

Because it was important for Jesus to identify with the local church and partner with them, isn’t it important for you? Many people, especially in our culture today, are faithful attenders. However, there is no commitment to a particular local church. It is very important to commit to a local church where you live. That is where you carry out your ministry. 

Many people attend various churches; they go from church to church based upon what they feel at a particular moment. This is almost like saying, “I don’t want anyone to catch me in one place all the time, because someone might ask me to do something.” 

There is an expectation and presupposition that you will commit to doing something. That’s the basis of a partnership. You bring something to the table; together in that relationship and in that community, you accomplish the will of God in that ministry. We must realize that God has called us to be actively involved and committed to a local church. 

You need to be involved in doing ministry. You need to raise your hand and say, “Pick me, pick me, use me. I’m ready to serve.”
