Plod for God

Monday, June 04, 2007
Yesterday at church we had a prophetic word for our church from a guy who came to speak. Part of that prophescy was the emphasis on being faithful to what God has called us. Being faithful with the 'talents' God has given us as is described in the Parable of the Talents.

I must admitt I've found myself in the past daydreaming of leading worship at large conferences, recording worship albums and doing interviews with Worship magazines etc. Suppose there is nothing wrong with those things in themself but it's not what God has called many of us to. Most of us are not called to lead worship outside the four walls of our church.

Infact in many ways it's probably easier to lead worship at a 'Passion' or 'Soul Survivor' type conference. You get several thousand people going for it, who choose to be there for a one off occasion and most likely come with great faith and expectations.

On the other hand you are part of a small church, who rain, hail or shine come weekly to a Sunday morning service. You lead worship to maybe a handful of people through the different seasons of church life. Through the good, bad and indifferent times.

I believe God has called us to be faithful with what He's given us for this season and time. To quote the preacher at our church last Sunday keep doing the 'Plod for God'.

His master replied, 'Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master's happiness!
Matt 25:21
