What is your ministry and your mission?
I hope and pray that your day started off the way you hoped. I’m sure that it has, because your reading to this blog.
We as church folk are always talking about the things the church needs to do. How the Preachers spending the tithe and the offerings. Always Complaining about something but never willing help with anything. Never willing to put some skin in the game or a dog in the race, or a paddle in the boat. Anything to help. Willing to take but never willing to give anything back. To save Gods people from themselves.
The point I’m trying make is every Cristian needs a ministry and a mission. You need a ministry and a mission. You need a ministry to believers and a mission to unbelievers. The mission in everyone’s life should be, not to tell people that they are dying and going to hell. But to go out and tell them, they can be forgiven.
I know that’s hard for some to hear but it’s the way God designed it. The apostle Paul states in Romans chapter 15: v20-22. My ambition has always been to preach the good news where the name of Christ has never been heard, rather than where a church has already been started, by someone else. I have been following the plan spoken of in the Scriptures, where it says,
“Those who have never heard of him will see, and those who have never heard of him will understand”
These passages of scripture should be taken as a blueprint of how we should pursue our own ministry’s because we all have something special to offer. Understanding what your mission is, is the start of fulfilling the command that Jesus had given to his apostles and the disciples to spread the good news and to heal the sick. Comfort those in need and to provide for the poor.
We stand in the congregation singing at the top of our voices. Dressed in the best we can afford. Claiming to be filled with the holy spirit. Giving just enough in the collection basket to make the rest church folks think they are good Christian. But their hypocrisy only goes so far. Because as soon as they walk out the door, they forget what they have heard and expect someone else to do the work. How many of us fit that mold? Most likely it’s the majority of us.
There’s a psalm: Psalm1:1. Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked; or stands in the way of sinners; or sits in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on this law, he meditates day and night.
I love these verses. Because this was the foundation of my recovery. It’s something I hold on too. As a constant reminder of where I have been and where God would have me go. I also say this every morning before I leave the house. For this is the day the lord has made. So, let us rejoice and be happy in it!
Thank you for joining my program. I hope something was said that you can carry though you day. Remember to be a blessing to someone and always put God first.
