I ponder what is ministry?

My simple definition of ministry is seeing a need and doing what you can physically, also doing battle in the spiritual realms until God and you make a difference.

Ministry to be real effective must be more than feeding in a soup-line and returning to the vomit of this world.

Luke 10:29 - 34

Many are like the poor "certain priest" and "certain levite" in the NT, they saw the hurting Samaritan, but they didn’t minister to him. He was left hurting.

Perhaps the certain leaders prayed, and then said be thou warmed and filled

(James 2:15--17.)

This is not real ministry?

Yes, real ministry helps fulfill physical needs where possible, but real ministry must reach beyond the reach of human hands.

We are no more than government projects if we

minister not to the soul and spirit.

I have made hospital visits and forgot to pray?

We need to survey what is real ministry and am I

effectively reaching to human needs and bypassing

spiritual truths?

We fine great emptiness and lack of satisfaction when we have done our best and never ministered to the real need?

#1 m in ministry ---MODELING!

Today, we suggest do as I preach.

Paul warned us, that we must model our sermons

before the people we lead.

Leadership must know hard trials and obstacles and

how to overcome; to first learn to rely on God and

secondly, to effectively declare the potential of

trusting the Lord.

The great "sons of the promise" went through terrible test and hard times, to teach the minister that effective ministry, can come only after the "TEST OF FAITH."

Abraham had one dream, --- a son, --- and how cruel

was God for suggesting to Abraham to lay his SON ON

THE ALTAR?

God never needed to test Abe, God knew Abe!

Abe needed the test to be an effective

FATHER OF THE FAITHFUL.

Here are the verses, look them up for yourself, no spoon feeding today.

1 Peter 1:15,

Luke 9:59,

Acts 27:35-36,

Mat. 23:3,

Exo.34:7,

2 Tim. 1:5......

without reading HIS WORDS my words are limited.

( Less than 1% of my mail has a returned message

that they have studied?)

A man should quit? The message burns in my bones!

I can’t quit.

Several years ago in Virginia, some kids were found in a cave, the Mom slopped the kids like pigs, the kids lived in a cave.

They never saw anyone walk,

or heard anyone talk.

When they were found, the kids were believed

seriously retarded.

An old lady took the kids, adopted them.

They watched her walk and learned to walk.

They heard her and her husband talk and soon the

kids were talking.

They learned to eat with a spoon and fork.

Why now and not before?

They had no role-model ---to see and learn.

What are you modeling before others?

Quit screaming!

Others are watching you ...

they will copy you, they will pattern their actions

by your reactions?

We must show God’s design.

The world can show you how to act in good times,

only a servant of God can stand before the fire

and declare a trust no matter what?

What kind of church would the church be, if every

member were just like me?

Don’t preach how to pray and then not model before

God’s people?

Parents you are a model!

Your little controlling fits teach!

Like it or not you model, and are setting guidance

patterns before others.

BEWARE, OF THE MILLSTONE!
