DEMANDS OF THE MINISTRY

DEMANDS OF THE MINISTRY

2 Corinthians 4:1-4 KJV 1.Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received
mercy, we faint not;
2.But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor
handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending
ourselves to every man's conscience in the sight of God.
3.But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4.In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest
the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto
them.

Romans 3:20 KJV 20.Therefore by the deeds of the law there shall no flesh be justified in
his sight: for by the law is the knowledge of sin.

HERE ON EARTH, YOU CAN HAVE LIFE.
YOU WILL NEVER HAVE FULL AND ABUNDANT LIFE UNTIL YOU HAVE CHRIST AS YOUR SAVIOUR.

Ephesians 2:10 KJV 10.For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good
works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

1)Demands perseverance.
Do not lose heart and don't give up.
We have this ministry because of God's mercy.
Romans 6:23 KJV 23.For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Romans 5:8 KJV 8.But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet
sinners, Christ died for us.
You cannot straighten up your life on your own.
Romans 3:10-12 KJV 10.As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
11.There is none that understandeth, there is none that seeketh after God.
12.They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none
that doeth good, no, not one.
Reasons not to lose heart is God's mercy, freedom, and life.
How can we quit on God, who has done so much for us.
1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV 58.Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable,
always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in
vain in the Lord.
James 1:12 KJV 12.Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he
shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

2)Demands honesty and integrity.
Romans 6:11 KJV 11.Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but
alive unto God through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Hebrews 12:1 KJV 1.Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of
witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and
let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
Do not use deception, be open and honest.
Galatains 5:16 KJV 16.This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the
lust of the flesh.
Ephesians 4:1 KJV 1.I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk
worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
Don't distort the Word of God.
The minister is the spokesman.
Matthew 24:35 KJV 35.Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.
Deuteronomy 4:2. KJV 2.Ye shall not add unto the word which I command you, neither shall
ye diminish ought from it, that ye may keep the commandments of the LORD your God which I
command you.
Send forth the truth plainly.
1 Corinthians 2:1-5 KJV 1.And I, brethren, when I came to you, came not with excellency
of speech or of wisdom, declaring unto you the testimony of God.
2.For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
3.And I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
4.And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in
demonstration of the Spirit and of power:
5.That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.

3)Openness.
Never to preach around the edges of the gospel.
Holiness demands judgement.
You need to come to Jesus just as you are. He will straighten out your life by teaching
you what you need to do in your life. The Bible is your guide and praying daily.
Some people have turned their backs on God. They are focused on the world.
God of this age is the devil.
Genesis 3:5-6 KJV 5.For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes
shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.
6.And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the
eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did
eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.
Satan appeals to our sinful nature. He tries to blind us from Christ.
The truth is that he is a liar, murderer and imposter.
John 8:44 KJV 44.Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will
do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no

truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the
father of it.
2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV 13.For such are false apostles, deceitful workers,
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
14.And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15.Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers
of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works.
Only the light can make the darkness flee.
JESUS CHANGES YOU PERMANENTLY.
REPENT FOR THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS NEAR.

GOD AND SUFFERING

GOD AND SUFFERING

WE HAVE ALL ASK IN OUR TRIALS, TRIBULATIONS, AND SUFFERING THE QUESTION OF "WHY ME?"

2 Corinthians 1:3-11 KJV 3.Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the
Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
4.Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are
in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
5.For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by
Christ.
6.And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is
effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be
comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
7.And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings,
so shall ye be also of the consolation.

YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLE IN THIS WORLD.
