Service. One of the privileges of being members of a church is having all areas of service within the body opened to us. Members must therefore seek to make use of their gifts, talents, time, energy and material resources to serve in the church. Of course, all believers are serving the Lord when we perform our duties in all the spheres of our lives. But as there are particular joys flowing from serving the brethren whether on the Sabbath or on other days, we should as members seek to serve. Let us talk to the officers of the church to find out how we may help. As Christ stooped to wash His disciple’s feet, it is a joy to serve the brethren even in mundane areas such as cooking, washing, ushering, arranging chairs, etc. As members of the church, we should ask: How can I serve the brethren, rather than what can I benefit from other members of the church. Let us “Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others” (Phil 2:4).
