In Ephesians 3:7-8, Paul mentions the privilege of spreading the Good News. Actually, he mentions it twice! My first thought was, “Did he write this book before his beatings, imprisonments, and other sufferings?” In fact he did not. Paul had already begun to experience the challenges of full time ministry in a hostile world but he had the mindset that it was still a privilege to serve his Savior.
What a great attitude and one we need to keep as we wrestle through ministry and life in a hostile world. A friend came in my office today and as we talked they reminded me that an ambassador doesn’t seek to fix the country where they serve, they represent the ONE whom they serve. Thankful have the privilege of serving and representing a Good Shepherd among saints that seek Him. Keep in touch with us here.
