I don’t feel like there are opportunities for me to get involved in my church. What should I do?
- Find needs to meet. No church, even the best-staffed and best-served, has absolutely all of its needs met. There are always children to watch, meals to cook, rooms to clean, members in times of special need, and much more. So pray that God would enable you to find others’ needs and meet them in a spirit of humble service, even if they aren’t particularly glamorous.
- Find Christians to disciple. All Christians this side of heaven are works in progress, and God wants all Christians to build up the church to maturityby speaking the truth in love (see Ephesians 4:11-16 Colossians 3:16-17 . So find people whom you can speak the truth in love to, and who can do the same for you. Ask a couple of new members over to your home for dinner and get to know the state of their souls. Find a younger Christian and begin reading Scripture and praying together.
