Those who are in the ministry should pray for mercy and for God's encouragement, so that they will not become discouraged. Renounce the shameful things that are known to be in people's hearts, but never attempting to be a smooth talker or handle God's Word deceitfully. Reveal the truth and support every man's spiritual needs in the sight of God.
Until it is revealed, the gospel is hidden to those who are perishing. Their minds have been blinded by Satan and they do not believe. All Christians, whether in the ministry or not, should shine the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, on those who have not yet heard the truth. After that, it is in God's hands. We can sow the seeds, but God makes the flowers grow. Share with others the truth of the life of Jesus Christ the Lord, and if they accept Him as their Lord and Savior, He will share eternal life with them.
It was God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, and it is He who shines the light in our hearts. It is God who gives us the desire and the ability to share the knowledge of God's Word with those who need to hear it. We are merely the mouthpiece. It is God who is the speaker.
These days, Christians face opposition from many sides, but do not let in crush your spirit. Things may not make sense sometimes, however, do not despair. Christians around the world may face trouble at some point, but we have the promise from God that He will never leave us nor forsake us (Hebrews 13:5). Because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit is able to live in us, and therefore God will always be with us.
Those who believe in Christ should speak of Him to others. Share the gospel with those who have yet to believe, This is the ministry that Jesus has given every believer. We do not need a building, an altar, or a Sunday sermon, to talk to other about Jesus. All a Christian needs is an ever - growing knowledge of God's Word, and to be living a life that is pleasing to God that can be seen by others. They will want the peace and joy that we have. Who among us does not want peace and happiness? Christians should share their testimony of what Christ has done for them. With these tools, anyone can eternally save someone else's life. There is no overhead. It doesn't cost a dime, but it could cost heaven a soul if the gospel is not spread to the nations, the communities, the homes, and the people who have yet to experience God's saving grace.
Always thank God for your salvation. Never give up on those who need Christ. We may face daily frustrations, but perseverance will bear fruit forever. Share with others that the pleasures that are worshipped in this world are temporary. They will someday perish. The gospel that is hidden from the unbeliever's heart, because Satan has blinded them to it, will last forever. If lost people will hear and accept the gospel, they will last forever too. This is the ministry of every Christian.
