“Everywhere is walking distance if you have the time.” – Steven Wright
Ministry is opportunity. An opportunity to introduce others to eternity, and a glimpse of it in the mean time.
For, “to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 1:21).
In living, we are able to magnify Christ and glorify God!
This is ministry.
It consists of the opportunity to glorify God by how one lives and brings others unto the realization that they were created, ultimately, for the same purpose.
We have the victory of life! But the victory of mortal life, is the foreshadowing of the victory in store in the next life (1 Corinthians 2:9).
The opportunities are ripe to live for Christ! Opportunity is not just local.
For ministry, unlike the quote by Steven Wright, it is not about time, it is about will to act on Scriptural principles.
To lean into opportunity and boldly proclaim, the Gospel (Colossians 4:3-6).
