Several years ago, I was confronted with three mindsets that are in God’s church. Let me preface, that of the three, only one really should be present.
The first, I love God’s church to benefit from it. This is a takers mindset, which sort of goes against what Jesus taught.
Second, I love God’s church to contribute to it. This sounds good and all, but for the most part, keeps you on the outside, not really getting wet. It’s sort of like setting at the edge of the pool, but never taking the plunge.
And finally, I love God’s church to give my life for it. This is what it is all about. Getting into the game. Getting messy. Being involved. As Jesus laid His life down, so should we.
So, which one are you? May I encourage you, if it is one of the first two, it is never too late to make the change.
