For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister. Hebrews 6:10
Volunteers are special people, especially those who volunteer for church activities and events. Those events are geared to share Christ and the gospel. What better way to spend your time and energy than in something with lasting benefits.
Volunteering for the service of Christ has eternal rewards.
Although we know Christ will remember these wonderful people that volunteer when they get to heaven, it's also a great idea to honor them and thank them here on earth as well.
Thanks for Stepping Up.
Everyone doesn't step up to the task. Volunteers are special. They get involved and don't stay sitting in the pew.
Thanks for Sharing in the Responsibilities.
When everyone works together for a common goal, it lightens the load.
Thanks for Caring for Others.
When someone volunteers it shows they care. They show that compassion like Christ had.
Thanks for Your Diligence.
Volunteers willingly use their hands for service. They do the hard work. Most of the time work that no one else will do.
Thanks for Your Dedication.
Volunteers care about the details. They are conscious of what they are doing and concerned about seeing that their tasks get done.
Thanks for Seeing the Vision.
Volunteers see the outcome. They know they are working for a purpose. They see the end result as being for the glory of the Lord.
Going back to Hebrews 6:10 it says that God's not going to forget those who have served Him. I don't think we should forget either.
So, have you thanked a volunteer today?
