Do Sumthin’

Bill Brinkworth

God’s intention for each person after they are saved is not just to sit around minister to othersand soak up knowledge from church, but to do something that would get more people saved, and more living for the Lord. It is God’s purpose for each of us.  Each child of God should be a tool that God can use for His glory, utilizing the spiritual gifts (Rom. 12:4-8) He has entrusted with each individual.
These gifts, and our special talents and abilities, can be used to reach the lost and glorify God in many different ways. Each of us can be an important cog in reaching the world for the glory of God.  We all can do something.
Here are some of the ministries in which I have seen many serving the Lord:


One of the great commandments that each Christian is to obey is to “… love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:31   Doing something for others and making their needs important to you is showing love to them.  Making others a priority in our lives also gets our mind off ourselves and can enable others to see the love of Christ through you.

If you have the desire to make a difference in this world for the cause of Christ, ask God to give you the ministry He wants you to have.  After that, look for the opportunity He gives you to do something for Him. There is something all can do.  There is a very needy world out there.  Everyone has a hurt, a discouragement, or a need.  God often uses other Christians to meet those needs.  He wants to use you, if you are willing.

Be a blessing to somebody today.  If you do not tell or show them about how good God is and the truths from God’s Word, who will? It is way past time for all to “do sumthin’” for the Lord!
