Ministry isn’t the easiest job at all. It’s extremely messy because I’m a sinner dealing with other sinners. It takes a lot of prayer. It’s sometimes inconvenient and there are times that are very tough but this isn’t something that you should dread and it is something that you should look forward to every Monday morning!
Never forget that people are giving their lives around the world to do what we do!
Praise God every chance you get that He has given you the opportunity to carry His name and share His name.
We GET to share GOOD NEWS!
We GET to teach any student anything from GODS WORD!
We GET to help parents point their student to JESUS!
We GET to get PAID for it! (Even if it’s not that much)
We should not expect our society or the news media or the entertainment industry to honor us as we carry out our Lord’s commands.
“Ministry is not a right, it is a privilege. Its not about the messenger, its about the MESSAGE!” –James MacDonald
By nature we are not worthy to be called one of his children, let alone his spokesman or ambassador. Nevertheless he gives us that glorious privilege to serve him in this way.
Not to us, Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.
