There Are No Volunteers by Pastor Melissa Scott

There are no “volunteers” in the Kingdom. On every level, this is
the commitment. It is morally wrong to subject any child in Sunday
school to a teacher who thinks he is doing God a favor to teach. There is
no such thing as “your work” and “His work.” You are either His 100
percent or you are not His, and it is all His. You have no family: you
raise your family for His glory. You don’t have a business: you are a
steward managing your business for Him. You don’t have a career or a
future: you are His to command! There is no church that is mine or
yours; it is His.
God will have nothing less than all of you. And that God would
take such stuff on which to build His Kingdom as typified in the
Adullamites and illustrated in the disciples tells me that it means a lot to
Him to have 100 percent. He will start over with such as these, like the
parable Jesus told of a certain man who made a great supper and sent
invitations. And all those invited made excuses. One had a wife, another
had a yoke of oxen to look at, another had a piece of ground. The man
said to his servant, “Bring in the lame and the halt.” (Luke 14:16-24)
When God calls, He wants all of you; that is a serious side of this
message.
