The Potential To Make A Difference

Over the years I've heard alot of great servants of God describe themselves as
"just a volunteer." I want to make something very clear, the term "Just A Volunteer" should have no place in our vaocabulary. The Church would not exist without the thousands of hours given each month by fired up volunteers. There's not enough money in the world to pay for all the good deeds desperatly needing to be done in the name of God. Without the work hours of volunteers, countless wounds will not be tended, mouths will not be fed, grieving people will not be comforted, broken marriages will not be mended, lonely people will not be embraced, children will not be nurtured. Countless cups of cold water will never be offered in Jesus name, and countless spiritual seekers will never be befriended and coach toward Christ. Whether God has blessed you with forty hours a week of discretionary time, or whether you can barely snatch forty minutes a month from your overloaded schedule, you the potential to make a difference in your corner of the world. You have alot to offer.
