Take heed to yourself and to the ministry 1tim 4:16, acts 20:28. The priority outlay is very clear.
- Take care of the minister so as to take good care of the ministry
- Strengthen the workers so as to establish the work
Our no 1 call is not to work for God but to walk with God.
If God is not pleased with you person he will take no pleasure in your work.
Do not love your work at the expense of your walk. Beware; Satan will seek to run your day so he can hit you hard.
Do not be carried away, by inspiration at the risk of your refreshing and fulfilment. Inspiration will reduce you to an orator while your spiritual build up will graduate you to an oracle.
By just working for God you are at the risk of burn out but with your walk with God you enjoy burn up continually.
Your personal spiritual build up defines the limit of your impact.
Without your builds up you will be reduced to a mere decorative candle stick without your build up, you cannot show up.
