Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God's grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10
Most of us want to make a difference; we want to leave our footprint on the world. And God has gifted each of us with a particular set of abilities and spiritual gifts to do just that - through the church.
As a new Christ follower, one of the most powerful lessons you can put into action is serving the church; it's stepping outside of your comfort level and stepping up to serve others.
Jesus himself said that He did not come to be served, but to serve others. When you volunteer your time and talent in the church, you will discover the key to unlocking a life of influence and church.
