Ministries

Pray, Serve, Give

It Starts With Discipleship

A Christian disciple is a follower of Jesus Christ. Sometimes we are tempted to prefer a comfortable and convenient discipleship.  However, Jesus says, “If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.” Christian discipleship involves sacrifice. When we make a conscious decision to follow Jesus Christ, no matter the cost to ourselves, we take on the lifestyle of stewardship. A Christian steward is one who realizes the fact that everything ultimately belongs to God. Even we ourselves belong to God. We are accountable to God for what we do with the gifts He has entrusted to us. Jesus says, “From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required.” God has made you a steward, or caretaker, of your life, your time, your health, your education, your material things, your relationships, and your personal talents. Being a faithful steward means this:

  • We gratefully accept the gifts that God has given us.
  • We take care of those gifts and develop them.
  • We give them back to God, in a way that is intentional, planned and proportionate to what has been given to us.

If the Church is going to fulfill its mission in the world, and if the world is going to become a better place, we must be good stewards. Part of our task here at All Saints is to instill good stewardship in the lifestyle of all those touched by our ministry. In this way, every single one of us will put our gifts to good use and leave the world a better place than we found it.
