Worship in weakness

I am grateful that God gave me a food for thought when I doubt if I should join the worship ministry for a year:)

''Shortly before Jesus was crucified, a woman named Mary poured a bottle of
expensive perfume on His feet. Then, in what may have been an even more daring
act, she wiped His feet with her hair (John 12:3). Not only did Mary sacrifice
what may have been her life’s savings, she also sacrificed her reputation. In
first-century Middle Eastern culture, respectable women never let down their
hair in public. But true worship is not concerned about what others think of us
(2 Sam. 6:21-22). To worship Jesus, Mary was willing to be thought of as
immodest, perhaps even immoral.

Some of us may feel pressured to be perfect when we go to church so that
people will think well of us. But a healthy church is a place where we can let
down our hair and not hide our flaws behind a façade of perfection. In church,
we should be able to reveal our weaknesses to find strength rather than conceal
our faults to appear strong.

Worship doesn’t involve behaving as if nothing is wrong; it’s making sure
everything is right—right with God and with one another. When our greatest fear
is letting down our hair, perhaps our greatest sin is keeping it up.''

God told me,

just go and feel my grace. It is my grace that makes you complete.

I am so relieved and I thank for God's comfort.

So, here I went, I filled out the form and join the ministry.
