The Chief Objective of a Minister

The Chief Objective of a Minister
Let it never be forgotten that the chief object of a minister of the Gospel is to set forward the salvation of souls. I lay it down as a certain fact that he is no true minister who does not feel this. Talk not of a man’s ordination! All may have been done correctly, and according to rule. He may wear a black coat, and be called a “reverend”. But if the saving of souls is not the grand interest—the ruling passion—the absorbing thought of his heart—he is no true minister of the Gospel—he is a hireling, and not a shepherd. Congregations may have called him—but he is not called by the Holy Spirit. Bishops may have ordained him; but not Christ.

Here is another good quote from: www.jcrylequotes.com. It gives us something to think about, pray about and be about.

Stay faithful and hopeful,

Here is another good quote from www.jcrylequotes.com. Think about it and if there are changes that you need to make in your life so that you give no hint of being ashamed of the Lord Jesus Christ. I’ve added a Scripture to think about too. I hope you have a great day living for the Lord.

Romans 1:16

(16)I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes: first for the Jew, then for the Gentile.

Stay faithful and hopeful,

Bill (a fellow-laborer)

Romans 15:13

Never Be Ashamed Of Christ!
“Whatever others around you think, don’t you ever be ashamed of being a Christian. Let them laugh, mock, jest, and scoff, if they will. They will not scoff in the hour of death and in the day of judgment. Hoist your flag; show your colors; nail them to the mast. You may certainly be ashamed of drinking, gambling, lying, swearing, idleness, pride, and failing to go to church on the Lord’s Day. But of reading the Bible, praying, and belonging to Christ, you have no cause to be ashamed at all. Let those laugh that will. A good soldier is never ashamed of the colors of his nation’s flag, and his uniform. Be careful that you are never ashamed of your Master.”
~ J.C. Ryle
