MOM: The Heart of Ministry . . .

Is unquestionably the act of surrender. Ministry begins when a person becomes resistant to the beckoning call of the human Mindset and desire to fulfill one’s own desires for self-glorification and ungodly independence (Pride). I used the word resistant to describe our capacity to resist the temptation of worldly thinking while actively pursuing the call of God to a righteous way. The example I often use to describe our capacity for resistance, consider the duck they are creatures born with the capacity to resist water to their skin. How is that possible, when God created them He gave them water resistant feathers. Have you ever heard the old saying, "like water on a duck’s back"? Similarly, we have the same capacity to resist evil of every kind.

The Heart of Ministry is a surrender to the call of God with an understanding that the called out ones are equipped with the capacity to resist worldly and satanic evil. In reality, the Heart of Ministry is the effective surrender and obedience to the Mindset of Christ which every Christian has access to through the Holy Spirit.

James 4:7 states, "So humble yourselves before God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. "
