As a believer, it's a good idea to attend church services regularly, but it's even more important to be an active member of your church. The fellowship and support you gain from being an active participant can help you strengthen your faith and religious walk.
When you serve in your church, you surround yourself with people who have some of the same views and purposes as you. When you're new in your religious journey, this type of support is especially helpful, especially if you are the only person in your family or friends circle that has decided to take this path. Whether you work with other people in the youth ministry or as a greeter, you immerse yourself with people who are on the same path as you, which is comforting.
As you go through life, you may encounter plenty of situations that make you question whether or not you are on the right path. In these moments, you can gain so much peace when you know that you are not going through these things alone; there are plenty of other people in the same situation. When you serve in your church you get to hear the stories of other people, and it lets you know you're all on this journey together.
It's awesome to see the power that comes with serving a higher power, and when you serve in your church, you get a front seat to the action. As a servant, you have an opportunity to follow the lives of people more intimately, especially if you operate in an area such as counseling or ministry. When you have a chance to see people in the midst of their struggles, but also see them come out on the other side victoriously, you get a firsthand account of the power of a religious walk.
With any believer, one goal is to find out what your purpose in life truly is. When you serve, you get a chance to try and figure it out. As you serve, you will be able to tell when you're just working in the church and when you truly feel like you are fulfilling a purpose. In the moments when you sense this connection, you will know that you're serving in your life's purpose.
Many churches have a variety of different ways for members to engage. Find out where your passion rests and where you believe you will be of the most help and start there.Share
