Effective Ministry

What is your testimony of God’s life changing power He has demonstrated in your life?

In order to effect God’s work we need a few tools under our belt:

1.  Know your story.  Share it.  Live it.

What has God done in your life that would bless and encourage others? Are you willing to be transparent and share yourself and your personal struggles? Does your story reflect His Glory and not your own efforts?

2. Know His Word.

The word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.

In ministering to others we WILL be attacked by the enemy (Ps 34:19).  Christ empowers us to combat the schemes of the evil one with His Word and be victorious for God.  Know it, treasure it and use it!!!

3. Be Accountable.

1 Thes. 5:11 So encourage each other and build each other up, just as you are already doing.

We need a spiritual mentor to check in with consistently.  A woman  of God who is mature in her walk with Him; who has extensive knowledge of His Word; is a prayer warrior and filled with His Love.  In ministry we enter a battlefield.  We are taking ground for Jesus…Spiritual warfare, weakness of the flesh, kingdom of the world issues will come.  Be prepared.
