Today was Installation Day for new Sunday School teachers and Officers, as well as committee members for the upcoming church year. It is a blessing to see new faces taking on responsibilities in the church and see those more experienced leaders still willing to lend a helping hand. It truly takes everyone doing whatever God has lead them to do to make the church (the body of Christ) work well.
There are times though when everyone feels overwhelmed by responsibilities or duties, not only in church work, but also in our daily lives. In Colossians 3:23 we read, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as if working for the Lord, not for men.”
These are encouraging words for us to think about. Working for God will always reap a good reward. God sees the things we do and He knows our hearts. If we seek to honor Him with our every effort, He is pleased and one day we will hear Him say “well done”.
That is good news!!
