THE SACRIFICE OF YOUR COMFORTS AND WELL-BEING
There are many things in the ministry, which may take away your comforts. If you are not prepared to sacrifice the little things of life, you may never amount to much in the ministry. Insisting on certain comforts on this earth can easily be the reason for your inability to progress in the ministry. You should “set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” Colossians 3:2. When your heart is set on things above, you will not be so fussy about things on this earth.
THE SACRIFICE OF YOUR FAMILY
Your family will make many sacrifices because of the ministry. You will have yo give up time and pleasure with your familyso that you can do the work. In Luke 14, the young man refused to attend the dinner because he had “married a wife“. “And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.” – Luke 14:20. Many people do not fufill God’s will because they try to please their wives. The Bile teaches us to love our wives. But the Bible teaches us to love God first. “If any man come to me, and haate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:26.
