When I Lose My Passion For Service
So many times we approach serving the Lord in our local church and we fail to remember why we are serving. Many of us go into serving with a mindset of responsibility, duty, and sometimes even guilt. We feel it is our responsibility to serve because of what God has done for us; or we serve because we think that since we are redeemed, it is expected of us to serve. This can even lead to us feeling guilted into serving God. 1 Timothy 1, Paul addresses those that are serving the Lord in the church, but adding to the gospel of Christ. In verse 6, he states that their service has become empty words. They have become so empty that they don't even understand, or have confidence in, what they are saying.
