MINISTERS: HUPERETAS = "self chained" to a decision
If you aren’t committed to go all the way in fulfilling your God-assigned task, you probably won’t do it. You must be absolutely committed to do what God has called you to do. “chaining yourself” to your decision to obey so you cannot flee in hard times. If God has called you, don’t jump ship! He needs you in the bottom of the boat in order to keep the Body of Christ moving forward toward maturity. You are very important.
Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. (1 CORINTHIANS 4:1)
YOU ARE VERY IMPORTANT!
