Listening to the Word

A Job or a Calling?

Job 15; Acts 19,20

“You know how I lived the whole time I was with you…I served the Lord with great humility and with tears…you know I have not hesitated to preach anything that would be helpful to you, but have taught you publically and from house to house. I have declared to both Jews and Greeks that they must turn to God in repentance and have faith in our Lord Jesus.” Acts 19:18-24

What is the difference between someone for whom ministry is a job, and someone who ministers like Paul?
Paul’s entire life was devoted to living and sharing the gospel. He made tents to support his own needs. His love for those he was serving motivated him to live sacrificially. Those he spoke to did not control what he said. He was motivated to teach the whole counsel of God to build up the faith of these believers. Paul’s ministry was both public in lecture halls and private in homes. He didn’t consider personal ministry beneath him. Paul preached repentance and faith in Christ. His teaching about grace has set countless people free from religion and works of righteousness. The bar is high that Paul set for those of us in vocational ministry. By God’s grace, we too can live and serve this way.

“Lord Jesus, I humble myself before you asking your forgiveness where ministry has become a job more than a calling. Fill me once again with your Spirit and love to serve others and you.”
