How To Have A Heart For Ministry

What are you doing in your life that will last forever?

All of the magnificent buildings of Solomon, including the Temple are gone. All of the wonderful buildings of Herod are rubble. The Pyramids are crumbling, the Tower of Pisa is leaning . . . Paul came to Thessalonica with an offer of something they could become a part of that never ends. Christ said here is something anyone in my family can do!

Jesus said:

·         I collect all of your prayers - PRAY!     Revelation 5:8 “And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odours, which are the prayers of saints. “(KJV)

·         I multiply sacrificial gifts - GIVE!     Mark 12:42  “And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing.” (KJV)

·         I count souls you lead to me - WIN!     Daniel 12:3 “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.”     Proverbs 11:30  “The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.” 1 Corinthians 3:10 “According to the grace of God which is given unto me, as a wise masterbuilder, I have laid the foundation, and another buildeth thereon. But let every man take heed how he buildeth thereupon.” (KJV)

·         I remember humble service -SERVE!     Mark 14:3  “And being in Bethany in the house of Simon the leper, as he sat at meat, there came a woman having an alabaster box of ointment of spikenard very precious; and she brake the box, and poured it on his head.” (KJV)

·         I love missionaries that do outreach - GO!     Matthew 19:29  “And every one that hath forsaken houses, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life.” (KJV)
