Effective Ministry: The Wealth of the Gospel

by Brett Fuller on March 24, 2019

It goes without saying that Jesus was the most outstanding minister who ever drew breath. Miracles, healings, prophecy all seemed to come easy as breathing. He set the bar quite high, yet not out of reach.

With respect to ministry, Paul writes in 2 Corinthians 4:7, "But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;" The treasure about which he speaks is Christ, and the context is ministry to others. Paul would not let the confines of his physical nature be the limiter of his ministry influence. He practiced reaching deep beneath his fleshly constraints to draw upon the wealth of supernatural ability.

This week, if you feel your ministry effectiveness is in the "red", take the lid off the treasure trove on the inside of you, reach down deep and pull out enough gospel wealth to enrich the world. Live right, live well…
