Serving and Evangelism

I thought this quote from Don Whitney's Book Spiritual Disciplines for a Christian Life was very good. Now just so you know I do have some disagreement with Don on some of the items in his book so this is not an endorsement, rather just a use of a fine quote.

In speaking on serving and I would also put it in Evangelism.

WANTED: Gifted volunteers for difficult service in the local expression of the Kingdom of God. Motivation to serve should be obedience to God, gratitude, gladness, forgiveness, humility and love. Service will rarely be glorious. Temptation to quit place of service will sometimes be strong. Volunteers must be faithful in spite of long hours, little or no visible results, and possibly no recognition except from God in eternity.
