THE PURPOSE OF GRACE IN MINISTRY
The purpose of grace in the ministry is for salvation of sinners and edification of saints, anything apart from these is eternally useless; it is also for self-sacrifice in the work as Paul said he labored more to serve people and not for people to serve him.
The abundant grace of God in the ministry is not for motivation of sinners and distraction of saints from heavenly focus, it is not for a minister to amass wealth or exercise lordship, it’s not for self-serving system opportunity for pastors and leaders in the ministry. The grace of God in ministry is given free of charge and it should be used freely from charging.
The purpose of grace in ministry is not to be famous, not to make fortune or to make followers or fans but for salvation of sinners and edification of the saved.
The effect of grace in ministry does not imply that the ministry will be less stressful physically, but the more grace you have in the ministry, the more laborious and productive you will become. The purpose of grace in the ministry is to labor more in the vineyard of God, but unfortunately many are misusing the grace of God in their ministries. When God releases His grace on a minister in any ministry, He expects him to make use of that grace for kingdom productivity – winning souls, edifying believers, and extending the kingdom of God on earth. This grace of God in the ministry can be spiritual gifts, divine capacity or signs and wonders, but the biblical primary purpose of this grace is for the salvation of sinners and edification of the saved, any effort made apart from these are in vain.
