In the busyness of ministry…

By July 27, 2012Church

…Don’t forget why you’re in ministry.

It was a calling.

You had a passion to serve.

You love people.

You wanted to make a Kingdom difference.

You wanted to be a disciple-maker.

It’s so easy to get distracted with seemingly good things.

You get bogged down in committees, and structure, and meetings, and programs, and activities.

It’s easy to forget there were bigger, more important reasons for your calling.

Here’s one way to keep remembering:

When it’s all said and done, what will people remember about your ministry?

Pick the answer you’d prefer then work everyday to achieve that.

The why should determine the what and the how.

Do you ever get distracted from your purpose?

    I get distracted easily. With so many students and so many events it gets chaotic. But I want to be known for leaving these students changed. That they're prepared and ready to go out into the world and change it.
