Apostle Grace Lubega
Psalms 5:3(TPT); At each and every sunrise you will hear my voice as I prepare my sacrifice of prayer to you. Every morning I lay out the pieces of my life on the altar and wait for your fire to fall upon my heart.
Your responsibility in the ministry is an altar.
Are you a pianist serving your local church? That is your altar. Are you a backup singer in the choir? That is your altar. Are you an usher? That is your altar. Are you an administrator, a pastor, part of the church’s sports team or serving in the married’s ministry? That is your altar.
Do you know why some Christians take their ministry responsibilities for granted? Do you know why some behave like they are doing their pastors a favour by volunteering? Do you know why they will habitually come late for choir practice or do the bare minimum when it comes to their duties?
Many of them do not know that these opportunities for service are altars, they think of them simply as things to be done to keep a church running.
What a shame!
That is your altar, dear Christian.
Because it is an altar, it is worthy of great respect. From it, you will receive favour, glory, and grace. You cannot afford to defile it with indifference, mediocrity, and sloppiness.
Do you know that the reason you may be struggling for a breakthrough in certain areas of your life is that you degrade and disregard the altar of service? How do you seek the hand of God expecting answers, yet abuse this altar?
Rethink how you serve God.
Consider how you handle ministry responsibilities. Are you zealous? Are you excellent? Are you diligent? Are you proactive?
Serve God with your whole heart in the knowledge that your service is an altar.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Your responsibility in the ministry is an altar. Serve God with your whole heart in the knowledge that your service is an altar.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for Your Word. It is a great and immense privilege and honour to serve You. I do so with diligence and zeal. Your work is my priority and Your agenda is my agenda. To the glory of Your name, Amen.
