Some people will say that they are not ready to serve God until they get everything right and learn all there is to learn about that ministry. If we have this mindset, we will never serve God because it is not realistic to expect perfect conditions. It is not about the task; it is about whom we serve. Even though the task may be menial, it is not because we are serving the Lord. If we think that a task is menial, we will not put our whole heart and mind into it.

But when we recognize its importance we are able to serve wholeheartedly. God sometimes gives us small tasks to perform to test our faithfulness before He will give us big tasks.

Matthew "Jesus did not come to be served; but to serve, and to give his life as a ransome for many. Remember selfishness says-- "What will I get? We are all loving channels of the grace of God. He has us work in His strength, not in our own strength. The love needed for ministry is not a natural ability, it is a supernatural quality that only God can provide. God is as concerned about the servant as He is about the service.

You and I can't do everything but we can do something, which is the ministry that God calls us to fulfill. Jun 01, Kristi rated it it was amazing.

The truths written in this book will challenge you to view your ministry from a more Godly perspective and will engage you in identifying the areas in which you can improve. That has a lot of good information about the challenges of ministry from the perspective of one that's been there. He doesn't offer easy answers, but he does not preach doom and gloom either. He's realistic that it's difficult, but it's good. It's a little old school, so sometimes I had to reread parts because the wording was cumbersome, but overall, the information was helpful and encouraging.

Apr 30, Michelle Barringer rated it it was amazing.

This book was such an encouragement to me! I'd recommend it to anyone who serves in the church, particularly pastors, but also ministry leaders and volunteers. It's a good refresher of why we serve, Who we serve, and why it matters. This was my first Wiersbe book, so I didn't know quite what to expect It's a fast read, but there's a lot to chew over, so I spread out the read over about a month.

Shelves: christian-living-books , classic-i-love-books. This book helped me to realize my role as a servant, like Christ was a servant. With all the psuedo-christian books out there about "getting your best life now" this one really brings it home that its not about living the "Good life" but its about living A GOOD LIFE for others and not your own selfish desires.

I loved it. Oct 24, Mark Clements rated it it was amazing. This is one of my few "read over and over and over again" books. Wiersbe distills his years of experience into 31 bite-sized chapters. He is imminently quotable and easy to read. From "how to leave a ministry" to talking about money, he injects common sense into many subjects. A great little book. I have read it a few times over the years and it is always encouraging and a helpful perspective. May 16, Sherrie rated it really liked it.
