Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 2 Timothy 4:2
Before we can begin to walk into any assignment in the Kingdom of God, we must first embrace the Blessed Master’s Heart for His Children on how to serve as He taught the Disciples and His Followers in the Holy Bible. Therefore, there must be a hunger for the Word of God and a firm understanding of it in order to serve in ministry.
Most certainly, as we delight in the Gospels, we are blessed to experience thy Blessed Savior’s Beauty: a most meek, lowly and humble Heart and read with awe as our Lord’s Followers hungered and listened to the Master’s Wisdom. How magnificent it must have been to rest at thy Lord’s Feet and hear the Glorious Parables of our Blessed Storyteller and Teacher!
Ofttimes, it is the miracles of the Risen Lord whereby we may choose to first study to prepare for ministry. Praise the Holy Spirit, for as we yield to Him, He is most faithful to teach and direct us to study the love, gentleness, meekness and perfect leadership of our King of Glory. This step of studying the Lord Jesus’ Character in the Holy Bible as part of your preparation for ministry is where I want to encourage you to take the first step to begin. Surely, as His Children we must know and love the Blessed Master to be released to serve and preach the truth about Him.
In order to begin to prepare for ministry, the Blessed One will call His servant into a season of consecration, isolation and pruning to prepare him or her for Service. For the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob must always be glorified in His vessels.
Let us read what the Spirit of Truth tells us in Romans 8:30:
Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.
Therefore, we know that we must be set apart in a season of consecration with the Lord to prepare for the ministry He has given to use to steward in the Earth realm for His glory. For it is in travailing prayer, sacrifice and ofttimes seasons of loneliness whereby the preparation shall bring forth the pure ministry thy Lord will be pleased to honor and His Holy Name is glorified.
