Job or Ministry?

I recently read this on a site I visit frequently & it is very thought provoking. For those of you who are working in the Ministry - think about these.

Some people have a JOB in the church; others involve themselves in a MINISTRY. What's the difference?

If you are doing it because no one else will - its a JOB
If you are doing it to serve the Lord - its a MINISTRY

If you quit because someone critizied you - its a JOB
If you keep on serving - its a MINISTRY

If you'll do it only if it doesn't interfere with your other activities - its a JOB
If you are committed to staying even when it means letting go of other things - its a MINISTRY

If you quit because no one thanked you or praised you - its a JOB
If you stay with it even though no one recognized your efforts - its a MINISTRY

Its hard to get excited about a JOB
It's almost impossible not to be excited about a MINISTRY

An average church is full of people doing JOBS
A great & growing church is filled with people involved in MINISTRIES

Where does your church fit in this? Where do YOU fit in this?
