Ministry to Human Need or the Lord? by Pastor Melissa Scott

Everybody will agree there is a difference between ministry to
human need and ministry to the Lord. And I think everybody can see
that where priorities are named in God’s book He puts the priority on
ministry to Himself. But I submit that we are always hanging our body
on the opposite. Why do some Christians get a sense of defeat in their
life? Because they think they are letting down in their visible outer
court activities.
I seldom see a Christian in a state of defeat where I cannot trace
the root to a pressure that has dominated the Christian world for years:
success is judged by that which you can quantify in the outer court. How
is an evangelist judged? By the number that he leads into repentance, the
number that he leads into dedication. How is a pastor judged? By the
number he leads into repentance, the number he leads into dedication: the
ministry to human need. When people grow old they begin to feel they
no longer have a place in the program of God. You trace it to the root.
They no longer have the strength to perform in the outer court, and it is
that pressure on them to get the work done from daylight to dark in the
outer court that is pressing in on them.
