Pits to Purpose – ” I have no one like Him!” Do they say that about you?

Pits to Purpose – Jett Life Ministries
“I have no one like him!”
The Apostle Paul said this about Timothy, his helper, in ministry.
Many people are so focused on getting out of work, doing only what they want or the bare minimum! These days, people want to bypass the helper status and go right to the top! Boss, Supervisor, Grand Pu Bah!! TOILETS. Click to read my story about toilets.

One of the first jobs I had in high school was at a convenience store. The job I dreaded most was cleaning the toilet! Man, people can make a mess. Know what I mean?

When I answered the call to ministry, my first full time pastorate was in 2006. The Senior Pastor! Guess what I did the very first week? I prayed with a demon possessed woman and…. cleaned the women’s toilet that overflowed! Yep, all in the same week. Even though I was the Grand Pu Bah! Why, because our awesome janitor wasn’t scheduled to come in that day.

Deanna and I went on to a church in Oregon in 2009. I was an unpaid assistant starting out. I Cleaned the church toilets every day from 6:00am to 8:00am and then put on my pastor hat! Weddings, funerals, sermons, counseling and…. toilets!

Moved back to Sedona, Arizona to be close to family and stepped out of full time ministry and into self employment as a handyman. Guess what that meant? MORE TOILETS!

Then, we came back from a vacation and flushed our own toilet and it overflowed! The sink overflowed and the second bathroom toilet did too! Tree roots caused me to clean two toilets!!!

A few month ago we rented a building for our new church. The landlord asked me to check the exhaust fans in both bathrooms because they were noisy. I knew what the noise was. Every time someone opened a faucet in the building, it would cause a whining sound somewhere else. Guess what was making the noise? The women’s bathroom toilet! The flow valve and flapper was old and causing the noise. Guess what I did? Fixed the toilet!

My point?
Whether it’s cleaning or fixing a toilet or some other job that you wish someone else at home, at work or in ministry would do, DO IT AND DO IT WELL.

May the same be said of you that was said of Timothy by Paul.
“ I have no one like him.”
God can bless this kind of person. A true and faithful servant. Even if no one else notices or appreciates your work, God does. Never forget, we have an audience of one. The One True God.

Philippians 2:20-22: “I have no one else like him, who will show genuine concern for your welfare. 21 For everyone looks out for their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ. 22 But you know that Timothy has proved himself, because as a son with his father he has served with me in the work of the gospel.”
