“The work of ministry is for all of the saints to do, not for the pastors to do and the saints to watch.”
“We must sing about Jesus’ work specifically and constantly because the gospel is the center of everything we do as Christians. What else is there to sing about?”
What does it look like for all of the church, all of God’s people, to give their all to God? Listen to a sermon I preached a few weeks ago at my home church, NewLife Community Church.
We often fall into the trap of thinking that the church is all about its leaders. In reality, the church is about everyone, not just the paid professionals and famous Christians. We see in the book of Nehemiah the importance and the powerful result of the whole of the church (especially a local church) moving in and investing in the mission and worship of God.
