It doesn't take a genius to figure out that everyone has different gifts for a reason. Yesterday in the midst of setting up the words for the EMU worship night, I was watching everything going on around me. Set ups, sound checks, you name it, it was pretty much being done.
Today watching the dress rehearsal for the Good Friday service, it was even more apparent. Lights, reading, singing, words, set ups, tear downs, dancing. All for His glory!!
You see, not everyone can be on the stage, not everyone can be the Pastor. Sure someone has to be the pastor, someone has to lead worship, but someone has to greet, someone has to run the nursery, the toddler area, run the sound, do the words, run the lights. It takes a whole bunch of gifts to show the love of Christ. It takes a fallen person, on their knees, it takes someone standing tall because He is risen. It takes the broken, the healed, it takes the lost, it takes the found.
All for His glory. HIS GLORY!!
God is good. All the time. He is risen. HE IS RISEN INDEED!
Matthew 28:6 He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay
