Caring Anxiously? by Pastor Melissa Scott

Now, the laws of the Spirit involve you taking charge of
yourself. We have been defining faith as more than just
belief. It’s hanging your body on what you know God has
said in His Word. Will you honestly confess you have been
a little guilty on occasion of not being so “moderate,”
as we’ve defined it? 

Pastor Scott continues: How many of us can admit we’ve done
a little anxious caring recently? Would you like to put
God’s law in motion? You can take hold of yourself and
say, “I’m going to put God’s law in motion until my
family and people around me can know my moderation and
can experience the joy I find in the Lord. He is enough.
Take everything else. I know whom I have believed.” 
Now, walk out claiming the victory.

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

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , — mscott @ 4:30 am

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.
