As followers of Christ, are we not servents of the church body?  All I wanted to say is this.  If we come to a place in our service to Jesus where we are not enjoying our servitude, we must reconsider our motives.




The concept of "other sheep, other folds" comes to mind when people talk of the church body.

I had similar frustrations at a church where I once served, so I just moved on to another church where the priorities are in line with mine.

Now, my love of service is not impeded by frustration and resentment, and I have been serving there about 20 hours a week for the last 3-1/2 years.

Regards,

Dan Timon

4bes:
For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh,but through love serve one another.  For the whole law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, "You shall love your neighbor as yourself."  But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the disire of the flesh.  for the flest sets its desire against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; for these are in opposition to one another, so that you may not do the things that you please.  But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law(of Moses).

Now the deeds of the flesh are evident, which are: immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outburst of anger, disputes, dissensions, factions, envy, drunkenness, carousing, and things like these, of which I forewarn you, just as I have forewarned you, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Now those who belong to Christ Jesushave crucified the flesh with its passions and disires.  If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.  Let us not become boastful, callenging one another, envying one another.

Galatians 5:13-26
