Paying Attention To Your Ministry
“And say to Archippus, ‘Take heed to the ministry which you have received in the Lord, that you may fulfill it.’” Colossians 4:17 NKJV
To take heed is to pay attention. Paul told Archippus to take heed to his ministry so that he could fulfill it. In other words, you will only fulfill your ministry by paying attention to it. Receive wisdom in Jesus name. Amen.
Solomon said something very important that’s applicable to all professions: “Be diligent to know the state of your flocks, and attend to your herds; for riches are not forever, nor does a crown endure to all generations.” (Proverbs 27:23-24). You can’t take your ministry for granted if you want to succeed at it. The same applies to your business and your job. You must pay continuous attention to it at all stages of it, else you risk losing it. Don’t ever get to the point where you become too big to personally pay attention to your ministry!
You will not lose your ministry in Jesus name. Receive grace to fulfil it, in Jesus name. And I pray for your business; it will endure for several generations in Jesus name. Amen.
