We confuse “ministry” with “the work of God”

and think it takes a special person to do it

one “called by God.”

It’s much simpler than that,

and it doesn’t require a certification, special training, or a paycheck to do well.

Ministry is simply giving yourself to another human being,

in whatever way they need

for any amount of time

Ministry is not counseling, life coaching, or advice giving

It is not creatively solving someone else’s problems or giving them the best formula to turn their life around

It can be done with a God-hating atheist, a “hopeless sinner,” a prophet, or a priest

Ministry is simply caring for the person in front of you.

And you are the very best person for the job
