God does not expect His people to serve Him in full-time ministry for nothing

What is the bigger picture? God does not expect His people to serve Him in full-time ministry for nothing. He does not expect pastors to leave their professions to do pastoral work without having any provision to feed themselves or his family. God is not like that. God provides for His church, what more for His priests. He promises to provide for everyone’s needs, and this includes those who are in full-time ministry.

In the Old Testament, God provides for His priest by giving them a portion of the sacrifice. It is a similar context in the 21st-century church. A portion of the tithes and offerings are given to the minister to provide for him and his family.

18 Scripture says, “Do not stop an ox from eating while it helps separate the grain from the straw.”(Deuteronomy 25:4) Scripture also says, “Workers are worthy of their pay.” (Luke 10:7) (1 Timothy 5:18)

Even when Scripture defends what God rightfully assigns to the minister, a lot of Christians do not feel they have a part in the big picture.

They understand God provides for His priests, but they feel that it is God’s responsibility, not theirs. They do not feel that they have a part in providing for their ministers and other Christian workers.

Myth: Pastors Should Be Poor

If supporting your ministers is not bringing joy to your generation, then there must be a corruption of the mind when it comes to generosity and obedience.

A lot of people assume that because people in full-time ministry are “godlier” (there’s no such thing), that they can (or should) live in poverty. There are a lot of issues with this mindset.

According to the Bible, a generous share of what we give God rightfully belongs to those who minister in His name. Participating in this ancient practice has brought joy to God’s people. If supporting your ministers is not bringing joy to your generation, then there must be a corruption of the mind when it comes to generosity and obedience.

The blessing does not stop with the ministers. There is a wider principle here. The church is a royal priesthood, in which every believer has the priestly duty to serve the living God. Thus, God is able to provide for everyone who does this duty. It’s just the more obvious and apparent ones in this office are the pastors. The bottom line is this — the God who apportioned to His priests nice, juicy pieces of meat can graciously supply whatever you may need.

Problems Reaching Your Goals?

1“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith”

2 Timothy 4:7

When you are trying to learn something new, write down your goals as you start. Write down the things that you want to accomplish. By writing down your goals, you know by yourself that you are going to accomplish something on the things that you do right now.

Learning a new skill may take more or less time, it depends on the process and how fast you can cope up on the things that you are learning. It is important that you track your growth and progress to be able to recognize that you are moving from one phase to another. So when things get hard, you can look back and see the things that you have accomplished.

To be able to make it more productive, you can write down your goals, the things that challenged you while you are studying and trying to learn on something. You can also write your achievements on a daily or weekly basis, to be able to see on how productive you are.

Commitment can be defined as the decision to do what needs to be done, whatever the cost. Christian commitment was defined by God’s example. God saved us from our sins; He loved us more than anyone can and that is God’s commitment to us. He even sent His one and only Son to die for us, to redeem us in this sinful world.

We are God’s children, our commitment in His ministry is important. Our ability is not measured by what we can do but how we make ourselves available for His ministry. Our commitment is more important than our talents. But how do we know if we are committed to God?

In the book of Daniel, we can see His commitment to God. No matter what the consequence of sharing God’s word he knows that he is under the protection of God. And that is what God wants us to have, the commitment and passion in serving God no matter what the consequence is.
