Below are some dangerous ways to expire in ministry without even Satan attacking you. lol
read and be blessed in Jesus name.(amen)
1. DON’T STUDY
Lot of ministers lack study life, majority of them are Google students, no personal revelation, no time for Study, they will just Google their messages or copy from Facebook, that is why lot of them are expiring daily. How can a minister preach or sing without solid word in his spirit, singing or preaching people’s messages.
> 2 Timothy 2:15 Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
2. DON’T PRAY
This one is common especially among Grace people, even those using charms to run ministry still prays more than so called genuine pastors. Prayer has a way of keeping you fresh, strengthened, bold and smart in the spirit as a minister. Prayer also prepares you to fight against powers of darkness and unnecessary tension. Singing or preaching without solid prayer life makes you an orator Instead of an Oracle.
> Acts 6:4 But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word.
3. DON’T ASSOCIATE
There are people you will move with your ministry will step into another LEVEL, choose friends based on your assignment and destination. Everybody must not be your friend, but you sure need certain persons around you. Mary met Elizabeth, the baby in her womb leaped for Joy. Abraham Left lot his nephew, The revelation of his next LEVEL came. So friends can make or break you, they can inspire or expire you. Choose FRIENDSHIP wisely.
> Proverbs 27:17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.
4. DON’T VALUE YOUR SPIRITUAL PARENTS
Choosing spiritual parents yearly shows foolishness, immaturity and disloyalty. There is no way you will move with your spiritual parents and there will be no issues, but disconnecting because of issues shows lack of training and submission. Your spiritual parents has a way of inspiring you constantly, they are your mirror, they are your role model, they motivate and inspire you to do and achieve more. Any act of insubordination, stubbornness, rebellion, disloyalty and disconnection especially when they are God’s sent mentors into your life will lead to your early expiration in ministry.
> 1 Corinthians 4:15 For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
5. DON’T STOP COMMITTING SIN
Sin does not add but subtract from you, sin has a way of reducing us before God and men, that you got away with your sinful lifestyle does not mean all is well, any act of sin kills something Precious and priceless in us. One of the most frequent and well celebrated sin today is immorality and if you are not a full time candidate of it, you are seen as a novice or a pretender. I am not judging anyone but we must try our best as ministers of God to fight sin especially immorality and idolatry away from our camps. Fight sex and charms in your life, do everything to keep yourself pure and clear before God and man.
> Hebrews 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
LOT OF MINISTERS ARE REGRETTING, FRUSTRATED, STRANDED TODAY BECAUSE THEY DIDN’T PAY ATTENTION TO THESE FACTORS IN MINISTRY. DON’T SAY IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN TO ME, DON’T NEGLECT OR REJECT THIS POST JUST BECAUSE IT TOUCHES YOUR AREAS OF WEAKNESS.
Learn from the mistakes and experience of others, don’t let people use you to learn in the negative.
