Christ is working through the congregation

God works through each of us:

Christ is also working, in a powerful way, through the vocation of the pastor. Christ as He animates His body, also works through what laypeople are called to do in the local congregation. All of those seemingly humdrum tasks–singing in the choir, serving as an elder, being on the board of trustees, teaching in Sunday school, doing committee work–are nevertheless critical areas of service that are tremendous blessings to the whole congregation.

Gene Edward Veith Jr., God at Work, 116.

(HT: Aaron Menikoff)
