Oh, amen to this! I’ve seen the most amazing thing play out in our church over the last year. As some of us were moved to other churches, or sidelined by illness, or afraid to attend because of Covid, God has moved so many “unknowns” into those vacated positions. They have stepped up & filled those positions! They have the talent, skill & courage to get the work done!
Sometimes we get so used to seeing the same people fill the same positions that we forget God has others who can do the work just as well. And sadly, some of US think that we are indispensable, & we have an inner celebrity attitude that God must despise.
It’s good to remember that we are replaceable. God’s will moves forward always…with or without us. It’s our job to stay available, humble & teachable if we want to remain in our role doing God’s work. When we are no longer usable, God will use someone else.
No celebrities in church. Only servants. ❤
