I need to elaborate further on my earlier input on the Church Instrumentalists, so that we do not get confused by my submission.
There are Instrumentalists employed by some churches and are being paid just like Church Secretaries and Church Office Workers are paid. They are doing their daily works. And many of these also coordinates the worship and technical sessions of the church. They are doing their jobs and are being paid for it. Out of the salaries, they still pay offerings and Tithes.
But when you are a member of the church, and being blessed in that church under your pastor as a church worker like the Church Ushers, Choirs, Technical Team, Prayer Warriors, and you still pester the Pastor to be paid for playing instruments, you are not preparing your ways for Blessings. Because, the Ushers, Choirs, Teachers, Cleaners and other Church Workers are doing these as service to the Lord, WHY WON’T YOU ALSO PLAY THE SAX, DRUMS, KEYBOARD FOR YOUR CHURCH SERVICE as A service to the Lord for that time? That is what I mean by mentioning the Other Church Workers. All these are just spiritual Advice for Blessings and Breakthroughs.
I do not mean to slight the Instrumentalists in the Church, but to learn to lay their gifts on the Lord’s Altar for His service INSIDE THEIR LOCAL CHURCHES, like the Ushers, Choirs, Security Team, Prayer Warriors, and the other Church Workers.
So, My post is not Generalised to all Instrumentalists including the professional ones who go about playing, BUT I AM SPEAKING TO THOSE WHO ARE CHURCH MEMBERS LIKE OTHER CHURCH WORKERS.
EVERY PLATFORM TO SERVE THE LORD WIRH YOUR GIFT IS AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU TO MAKE A SACRIFICE ON HIS ALTAR.
