From your Pastor;

 

    Can I ask you a question? Whom are you serving?  Believers or God? What is the focus of your works – the works themselves or the Lord? To minister to the house and to minister to the Lord are two different actions.

    It seems today there are many who minister to the house but they are not ministering to the Lord.   Yet the ministry which the Lord is seeking today is that which ministers to Him.

    What He requires of us, is not to merely do His works. Works are important, tilling the ground, tending the sheep. These are important, nevertheless, the Lord is looking instead for ministry to God, a serving of the Lord.

    “Yet they shall be ministers in My sanctuary, having oversight at the gates of the house and ministering in the house; they shall slaughter the burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them to minister to them...

but the Levitical priests, the sons of Zadok, who kept charge of My sanctuary when the sons of Israel went astray from Me, shall come near to Me to minister to Me; and they shall stand before Me to offer Me the fat and the blood,” declares the Lord  God. “They shall enter My sanctuary; they shall come near to My table to minister to Me and keep My charge.”

                                                    Ezekiel 44:11,15-16

      So again, who or what are you serving?   Serve the Lord with gladness.
