God Gave Me This Ministry

I’ve said this before, but in Scripture, “ministry” means “service.” It’s not an organization or employment or education or position or anything like that. It is the simple act of serving other people.

Scripture tells us that God will give us the strength and ability to serve other people, and that he will be glorified when we serve other people.

God never asks us to start a Ministry; he asks us to start ministering to (serving) others.

(By the way, I’m not in the picture attached to this post. This is a picture of some of my friends following God’s call to serve other by helping put siding on someone’s house. They did not start a construction ministry. They served a family by doing what was needed.)
