"Faye's daily words of encouragemnet" # 33 Todays word is: Ministry"

Definition of the word Ministry: The care of others.

2 Corinthians chapter 4 - 1 : Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have recieved mercy, we faint not.

Ephesians chapter 4 - 12 : For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.

2 Timothy chapter 4 -5 : But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof thy ministry.

Acts chapter 6 -4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.

We as children of God all have a ministry to fulfill. Some of us don't want the job of ministering to others, but it's a good job to have, because Jesus did it. Some of us don't have a clue to what their ministry is, suppose to be,and if that's your problem; you should prayer and ask God to show you, exactly what it is he want you to do.

Fortunately for me, I have known since I was fifteen, that my ministry is to help people in word, in need and in deed. I have to say, I truly enjoy my calling.  It brings me joy and happiness in this world of ours.  Having a ministry isn't work to me, because I enjoy what I do.  If you can find something to do for people that you enjoy doing then ; maybe that would be your ministry. What ever your ministry is; pray about it, search for it, and seek it out until you find what ever it is that God want you to do for him.

Ministering to others is truly a God given privilege. Sometimes, due to fear of rejection or opposition, we tend to hold back. That's where prayer for courage comes in at. There is so much apathy, that it can be hard to follow through.

I totally agree. Sometims we try to downplay or overlook the things we are good at and not use them to glorify God. I have known this for some time but I was stubborn. I used to use my talents to glorify myself... That TRULY was NOT what God intended for me. Now that I have had to learn the hard way, I am now doing what I can to glorify God. As Paul says, you must become like those in the world to reach them. I feel what he means by that... I use to want to fit in to be popular... I now want to fit in to inject the word of God to those that are eager to listen. I have my own way of doing it, an I have found myself giving a lot of inspiration from God. I allow people to see that I have had many faults and if I can glorify God, then anyone can.

Thanks for another great hub.
