James reads: What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? It is not enough to come to church; it is not enough to be faithful to the tithe; we must spread God’s word and we must serve. God gives to each of us spiritual gifts. The bible describes these gifts in the book of Romans, where it says: so we who are many are one body in Christ, and individually we are members who belong to one another. And we have different gifts according to the grace given to us. If the gift is prophecy, that individual must use it in proportion to his faith, if it is service, he must serve; if it is teaching, he must teach; 8 if it is exhortation, he must exhort; if it is contributing, he must do so with sincerity; if it is leadership, he must do so with diligence; if it is showing mercy, he must do so with cheerfulness. Once you have identified your gift, you should operate in that gift. The church has needs. Volunteers are needed to teach our youth, to serve as Ushers, to communicate church events, to present data on social media, to perform data entry, to spread the Good News, to assist with producing print materials, etc. There is a place for you to serve. No experience necessary. All you need is a willing spirit and in most cases a commitment of less than two hours per month. So, I encourage you, if you are not serving in ministry, get connected.
