More service, fewer services

I shared an article about the ministry on an Orthodox Facebook page and the moderator asked me if we were Orthodox, because it wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the article. I replied that I didn’t think we needed to be sounding our trumpets when doing good works, did we? And as far as whether we are orthodox or not, Jesus will sort that out according to Matthew 25 at the last day, now won’t He? Then I gave him a run down of who attended which jurisdiction’s churches. Then I left that group. I think we really need to be more concerned about serving Christ than which service and how many we are attending. If those officiating those services do not equip us to do works of service, they are not performing their God assigned functions according to Ephesians 4.

If we get so busy going to services that we never do any service, then the church just becomes like Amway without any soap.

“You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.”
