Fellowshipping and Worshipping Servants
By CBM National interns, Scott and Jerri Carpenter –
In the little amount of time we have been on rotation as CBM National Interns at Cornerstone Ministry Center in Southwest PA, we have definitely experienced fellowship and worship. Our first week here we had a work team. The best part about this team was simply that it was truly a team. No one was given a task by themselves. The goal was not only to complete projects and tasks around camp, but to fellowship and worship together through each of these projects and tasks. We worked together, ate together, planned together, and worshipped together. The bond that was created through the team made the work seem like it was flying by. Were some of the tasks hard? Of course! But, being with brothers and sisters in Christ while doing those tasks made it well worthwhile.
It is better to think of ourselves as servants of God rather than volunteers. One definition of a servant is “a devoted and helpful follower or supporter.” As Christians, that is exactly what we are when it come to our heavenly Father and His ministry. We are His servants. As His servants, we should be obeying His commands. As Acts 1:8 says, “‘But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.'” God wants us to go out and minister to others and help whenever we can. This form of ministering might be tearing shelves out of a room, scrubbing walls, or sitting down with a child to share the gospel. All of our work is to glorify God. Why not fellowship and worship with fellow believers at the same time?
