I work hard. I actually enjoy working much of the time. I have to guard my own heart so that I remember WHY I do that, and WHO it’s for. Singing a worship song is just singing a song without a relationship with God. Running tech at church is just playing around with gear without a relationship with God. Ushering at church is just holding a door without a relationship with God.
“Everyone knows that just because you serve or work at a church, it doesn’t mean you have a healthy relationship with God. Service is not a substitute for the relationship with Christ. Remember, Jesus wants a relationship with YOU, not just your hard work.” – Rick Muchow
