The Christian should minister by meeting people’s needs with love and humility on Christ’s behalf. Christians are to minister to others out of their devotion to Christ and their love for others. Ministry to others should be impartial and unconditional, always seeking to help others as Jesus would.
Ministry should certainly place emphasis on sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others so they can come to know Him and receive Him as personal Savior, go on to experience Him as Lord of their life, and go even further to know Christ as the essence of their Life. Ministry can, and should, include ministering to the physical, emotional, mental, vocational, and financial needs of others. Jesus did, and so should we!
