|Staying in the Word|
Chapter One, Lesson Six
COMPLETE IN CHRIST Page
** Beginning with the first one, for Paul and every Christian, what is the source of the ministry?
** Well, that explains Paul, but what about the rest of us believers?
V.24 ** 2. Spirit - As we get into verse 24, understanding that Christ is the source of our ministry, how far do we have to go to learn the spirit with which we are to minister in His name?
** Can you think of any other time that Paul expressed his passion for rejoicing in ministry?
** Do you let the challenges of your daily life rob you of the joy of using your spiritual gift for the benefit of your brothers and sisters in Christ?
** 3. Suffering - We have seen the source of ministry and the spirit with which we are to serve, now what does it mean when the Bible talks about the suffering of the ministry?
** For whose sake was Paul suffering? (verse 24)
