Posts Tagged ‘2 Timothy 2: 4 – 5’
This post is part of a weekly worship blog carnival, so do stop by the worship community for more setlists and sermon recaps from around the world…
I actually went to my church’s morning service this week (woo hoo) but I was late so I missed the setlist (boo hoo). Anyway, one of the youth guys, Josh, was on the team leading worship this week…super cool. Anyway, finally got to go to youth – which was awesome! The group has really grown this year. Anyway, we watched Brian Welch’s “I am second” video and basically had a discussion on what came out of that…and then looked at some select passages from Ecclesiastes…looking forward to the rest of the series.

Abi was leading today with Ronel assisting, and it was one of those stressful weeks. Two new songs and things just weren’t happening. Five minutes before the service was supposed to start we were just like we need to go pray cos this is not happening…and when we did finally play I have found, it sounded wow…and people said they liked it afterwards, which is super cool considering as the band we spend probably more than 3 hours just on that one song. Quite a big team today – 4 vocalists, 3 guitars, 1 bass, and drums.
For the next six weeks we will be going through the six pillars – or main values – enGAGE stands on. Today was the third one – “Serving Purposefully”.
Ephesians 4: 11- 13 -> God has given us gifts for the work of Christian service for the building up of His Church.
2 Timothy 2: 4 – 5 -> I am only one person, I cannot do everything, but the bit that I can do – God willing – I will do…and I will do it well. We have different giftings, figure out what yours is and do that well, cos if you try to do everything you are just going to wear yourself out.
Colossians 3: 24 – 25 -> whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of our Lord Jesus, with all your heart – as if working for God and not men – giving thanks to the Father through him.
Remember, God sees your motives. Don’t do it with the intention of being praised for it, for if you do, then you’ve already got your reward.
Afterwards we read the bit where Jesus washes the disciples feet and tells them to do likewise, and then we grabbed buckets of water and washed each other’s feet.
I don’t so much mind washing other people’s feet, but having my feet washed was weird and uncomfortable, but also really cool.
