6. Commitment to ownership.
“If this was ‘my problem’ what would I do differently?”
We bring solutions, not just problems. We fix things that are broken. We actively look for needs and gaps and we fill them.
7. Commitment to others.
“Who else can I include?”
I don’t hold tightly to “my thing” but actively look for ways to include others on the journey. This is our mandate. We are one body, each with a part to play (1 Corinthians 12).
8. Commitment to unity.
“Am I an island?”
Musicians, artists, lighting operators, singers, designers, photographers, dancers, audio engineers, film producers, stage managers, producers and writers. We are all part of the worship team and we are better together!
9. Commitment to fun.
“Do I take myself too seriously?”
No explanation needed. Don’t forget to laugh! Jesus said the that He came to give us joy. Church is to be enjoyed, not endured!
10. Commitment to the cause.
“If I was the only one, would I still be here?”
Family, friends, fun and a worship team to be a part of are all great reasons to serve each weekend. But deep down inside I know that, if I was the only one here, I would still turn up. Why? Because I believe in the cause of Christ. I believe in building what Jesus said He would build—His Church (Matthew 16:18).
None of us get these things right all of the time. But they’re important and godly commitments for us all to be aiming toward, both personally and collectively!
