Being True To Your Ministry
"The Lord also called to the man of God. He said, “This is what the Lord says: You rebelled against the words from the Lord’s mouth and didn’t obey the command that the Lord your God gave you" (1 Kings 13:21).
NOTICE: Our online Ministry would be celebrating 10 years on the 20th of October 2022. It's been faithful service and great support from all of you. May the Almighty God continue to bless our work and those precious, precious brethren who have been faithfully and tirelessly supporting us through their prayers, financially, and emotionally to continue the Lord's work. Like the Apostle Paul, we also publicly acknowledge those who stayed the course with us. A special thanks to Mr. Ryan Bird and his precious family, Sister Erika and her supporting family, Brother Andrew, and our own Sister Thandazo, and the encouragement from our Brother Patrice (Romans 16:1-16). You are the men and women who encouraged and carried us to achieve this milestone, may God Almighty greatly bless and honor you for your faithful service and show you grace and salvation in your hour of need and testing, for when we experienced ridicule and insults you lifted us up and believed in our work and calling.
A few years ago, we were approached by a brother who asked us to inquire from the Lord if he may join another ministry and abandon the work he was called for. The Lord gently answered him and said, "I did not call my son Saul (not real name) to do ministry work there, the ministry work he is doing now is as important as that of the other minister".
Often, when some Christians see how well a servant of the Lord is doing in the work the Lord called him or her to do, they consider the work they were called to do as inferior and desire to join or do the work another minister is ordained and anointed for. God is not an author of confusion, people should not think that ministry work is a means to draw attention to us or a means to show our importance in Christ (1 Corinthians 12:15-26). The key to a successful ministry is obedience and humble service (1 Samuel 15:22; Mark 10:43). Being a minister of the gospel, requires you to be bold, courageous, and fearless. The Pharisees in the Lord's time, did their best to try and intimidate our Lord Jesus Christ, but His boldness, courage, and fearlessness caused His message to echo unhindered into the hearts of His listeners (John 7:25-26).
Brethren, let me emphasize a shy or 'introverted' Christian has NO excuse! I've been shy and afraid of people so has Moses (Exodus 4:10), but the Word of God must be spoken through you because you have been changed to tell (2 Corinthians 4:13).
Finally, the only difference in ministry work is the greater the anointing the greater the accountability (Luke 12:48). We cannot neglect nor hide behind our short-comings, the Lord wants to use us, step out and proclaim your faith, endure insults, acquire the scares of your testimony and inherit the Kingdom as an overcome and a soul-winner!
