Being “ministry-minded” begins with your attitude towards: God, His people and His work. First of all, the mental picture you have of the God of the Bible greatly influences the level of your ministry-mindedness. How you see Him will greatly impact your mentality towards the ministry He assigns to you. Your view of Him as the One assigning you the work is key. Think about it for a moment. The King of Glory has chosen you to be in partnership with Him in kingdom endeavor. The Apostle Paul said, “And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry,” (I Timothy 1:12 NKJV). We all should be as thankful! This thankfulness however should produce an increasing thouhgtulness.
Being ministry-minded means that the work of ministry comes up in your mind more than just when you show up at the church for worship. You actually give thought time to what you have been assigned to do and how you can make the ministry better even as a whole when you are not necessarily on site?
The Kingdom of God deserves people that give “thought time” to it relative to the God who blesses us to serve in it. As you consider Him, think about His work and how to get it done, who to involve along the way, the people it is to benefit and who you are becoming as you walk it out!
If this has blessed you, share it!
Stay On Target!
