Now, it’s a challenging job to be a servant of God, that if one is not careful he end up serving tables, rather than spending time on prayer, preaching, teaching, or on the ministry of the word he’s been called to do. Peter said, "we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word" Acts 6:4.
Yesterday I released an article on what that means, and that we should preach about, that God brought Jesus back to life again, after he was killed by hanging on a cross, but then, with mighty power, God exalted him to be a Prince and Saviour, so that people would have an opportunity for repentance, and for their sins to be forgiven. "And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him" Acts 5:32.
I said God counted us worthy, we who are in the ministry of the word, that we should preach to the people this gospel, and preaching everyday is grace, or enablement. He wants us to meet everyday if we can and wherever possible, teaching and preaching Jesus Christ. You cannot say I have heard him enough!
"And the word of God increased; and the number of the disciples multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith" Acts 6:7.
Priests are the worse ones in serving tables, but here when they heard this word, a great company of the priests were obedient to the faith. Leave others for administering a feeding program, but thou man of God no excuse, that you should leave the word of God, and serve tables.
