Eight Marks of a Minister Approved by God (based on 1 Thesalonians 2:1-12)

1. Purposeful Ministry (v. 1)

2. Bold Evangelism (v. 2)

3. Pure Motives (v. 3-6)

4. Humble Leadership (v. 6-7)

5. Intimate Relationships (v. 7-8)

Just beautiful. Ministry is a high calling with people who are willing to be committed, but the rewards are great. I need to remind myself of these lessons everybody.
