NOT SITTING AND SOAKING

I don’t think we, as Christians, were called to “sit and soak” at church, so I explored ways to get involved on Sundays. After seeing all the needs, I started volunteering with the baptism team. On the first Sunday of each month, we get to church early to set up everything for the baptisms: the tables, the signs and the special bags that we hand everyone getting baptized. Those bags include the clothes to wear during the baptism, towels and toiletries. We gather everyone who will be baptized and give them instructions. We even get the privilege of praying with them beforehand. The team is made up of a great group of people that help make the day special for those getting baptized. I originally served as a member of the team, but realized I wanted to help lead the group because of how amazing an experience this was. I love getting to connect with people from all walks of life, and being able to help at church. To get to be a part of this special day in their lives is truly wonderful.

    Soaking I believe means to soak in the Holy presence of God and does not mean not to work in the Kingdom of God also. Thanks for sharing your testimony. It is always good to keep being a part of the local body.

    Using your story in our church bulletin tomorrow (Aug. 27)……Too many ‘sit and soak’ while the pastor or just a few do all the work that needs to be done. All need to participate and contribute. No ministry is too small in the eyes of the Lord. Thank you for sharing and for encouraging others to step forward as led by the Spirit
