If we have to look at ministry, it will be best seen through the eyes of those that stood in it, not those that are still in their process.
Paul said we know in part, we prophecy in part but when that which is perfect is come, you will know as you are fully known. Now this is what God told me about ministry which means to serve, how we serve in our part which comes through prophecy will determine how far we go in ministry, and as you play your part well you will be given your next, but remember when one is called to do what God has called them to do, you will have trouble coming your way designed to make you walk away from your God given assignment, how one deals with challenges will also determine whether you going to your next part, for as life comes in stages, so does our walk in ministry work. Some of us will never go to the our next part because we’ve not been faithful in the first part. To God it is how we serve under pressure that will determine our worth, gold has to go through the fire to be purified, so it is with ministry, your test always determine your worth. Job says tho I’m tried as gold in the fire, I will come forth as gold, he came out with more then what he lost.
How you go through what you going through will determine your promotion, your blessing and your stand in life.
