What is your expected outcome of the gospel in which you preach
"Many men go into the ministry not only for the power trip involved, but also so that they will never have to be interrupted or contradicted."-Frank Zindler
What are you hoping to gain from the ministry in which you preach? When I say preach I'm not just talking about preaching a sermon but also singing, dancing, drawing/painting & whatever else it is that you use in order to glorify Christ, our Lord and Savior. I hope that your answer would be reaching all in a way so that none would perish.
In Matthew 20:26 NIV the Bible tells us that whoever wants to become great must become like a servant first. What this means is that we've got to act just like Jesus did. Acting like Jesus simply means serving others instead of hoping to gain any applause, notoriety and or fortune whenever your ministry is on display.
Building up the body of Christ (Ephesians 4:11-13 NIV) the true expected outcome of the gospel in which we preach!
