Doing “Ministry,” starts with you. If you are not daily in the Word and trying to grow as much as you can, then how do you think you can pour into others. You can’t you are living off of fumes. So many people in ministry or even volunteering are living off of fumes from an event. If you want to truly do ministry, then everything you do is going to come from your heart.
45. The good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and the evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For out of the overflow of his heart his mouth speaks.
I think that people get so excited about “Doing Ministry” but the actions and things they say do not match up. I really get tired of people “in ministry” just “doing ministry” on Wednesday’s and Sundays and the rest of the week it is not a part of their life. STOP!! Please…
Ministry happens all the time 24hours a day 365 days a year. It is not an option, it is a lifestyle, if you get paid to do it or not. The Bible was written for everyone, not just paid staff of churches. Even some of them need to stop “doing ministry” on Sundays and Wednesdays or when you “get paid” to do it. If that is the case then you really need to STOP…
Our hearts should be so full of Christ that we can pour into empty peoples lives. We need to be constantly pouring. But you can not pour if you have nothing to pour out.
