10 Qualities And Benefits Of Being a Church Worker

LOYAL CHURCH WORKERS

ATTRIBUTES AND BENEFITS OF A LOYAL CHURCH WORKER


The word “Loyalty”- means the quality of been faithful to your friends, principle or country even an organization. Today, 90% of ministers and leaders say they are tired of dealing with disturged, double-faced and disloyal associates. But the sad reality is that such types of people are in majority in church of today. Psalm 12:1 “Help, Lord: for the godly man ceaseth: for the faithful from among the children of man. The faithful fail form among the children of man. This was the heart cry of David probably after bad experience he had in the hand of King Saul.


From generation to generation every movement of God in human history usually needs a man that is so loyal- faithful, hold firmly to God’s principle. ( Ezekiel 22:30)


John 1:6 – There was a man sent from God. The man is always more important to God than anything else. The leading of God always start with a man that loyal to the call, which shall then transform to movement. I am of opinion that the Genesis of disloyalty in the society or within the church is a carryover of wordliness and carnality to the church, many of us have forgotten that the real and authentic meaning of worker/leader in the church is servanthood. (Matthew. 20:25-27) Jesus condemned gentiles way of leading and command them that whosoever that want to be a leader among you should be your servant.

      HOW TO BE A LOYAL CHURCH WORKER


Matthew 8:8-9 ..... “ He said for I am also a man under authority” i.e  centurion  know the power of authority. To be under authority means to be accountable to someone, not being all in all, but submissive, teachable and responsible to a capable and godly leader. What to do to become a loyal church worker.


1)    Be convinced to follow Him. Joshua 1:1: When you are convinced by God to follow and serve a leader than you are ready to follow well. Nothing he does will make you to be offended/disloyal

5)    Do more than is required – Philippians 2:21: Loyal church worker don’t do only what is required of them and stop. Stop thinking what church can do for you but what our generation can do for us to live unforgettable legacy. i.e. at our various department.


6)    Intercede for your leader: One of the best ways to assist your leader is to pray and intercede for him. There are battles the leader is facing because of the work.


7)    Giving – (Luke 6:38): God is a God of order, he called Levites and appoint them out of 12 children of Jacob to maintain the temple of God and be priest to His people. Likewise church should give her best support financially, morally as God enables to support the ministry of their leaders.
