Building a Christian ministry today is a true calling.\u00a0 In order to make the ministry successful, you need to first have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.\u00a0 When we serve God, He opens doors for you to reach people.\u00a0 \n\n\n\nWe may even wonder if we should give up another job in order to serve God in the ministry.\u00a0 When we decide to follow Jesus, we must give up our life for him.\u00a0 Peter the apostle was a fisherman before Jesus Christ called him to be a disciple and then a minister of the gospel.\u00a0 \n\n\n\nThe apostle Peter had no earthly riches and often taught the followers of Christ to share all that they have and to divide their wealth evenly amongst one another so that nobody would be lacking anything.\u00a0 He was a man.\u00a0 He could have denied this calling by Jesus.\u00a0 However, he felt the call from God to give up his life for Jesus and to preach the good news.\u00a0 It must have been a hard decision to make.\u00a0 \n\n\n\nWhen we\nminister the gospel of Jesus Christ, its not easy financially or spiritually. You\nreceive constant spiritual attacks. Most\nminister of the gospel are not going to be driving around in luxury cars or\nstaying in fancy hotels. Instead, they will often make mediocre incomes and\nbelieve in faith that God will provide for them. \n\n\n\nChoosing to minister for Jesus is a decision that will change your life. For starters, you need to understand that you may not fully understand why Jesus has called you or how your ministry is touching other people. \n\n\n\nMany ministers grow frustrated preaching and teaching the gospel to people. It\u2019s frustrating because many people are living their lives in sin and don\u2019t want to live a lifestyle that is acceptable to God.\u00a0 It often pains pastors to see their \u201cflock\u201d living in sin and even rejecting the gospel itself. \n\n\n\nToday, we\nlive in a world where deceptive teaching is making a way into the church. People often don\u2019t know what true gospel is\nand what is something made up by a pastor. \nToday, a follower of Christ must reach the Holy Bible for themselves daily\nin order to not be deceived. \n\n\n\nSaving\nSouls is Eternal\n\n\n\nIts true that as a minister of the gospel, you may not receive the same income as if you were working in a business of \u201cthis world\u201d. Most ministers take a pay cut. Many pastors have given up their jobs as doctors and lawyers to be able to serve Jesus in the ministry. This is never an easy decision to make. Many biblical scholars say that Peter the Apostle and his brother Andrew had a thriving fishing business before meeting Jesus. When Jesus told them to drop their nets and follow him, they had to give up their secure way of earning money. It was not an easy decision to make, but they believed in Jesus. \n\n\n\nIf you truly\nbelieve that the gospel is something that must be preached, then its worth giving\nup your life for it. Afterall, you cannot take money with you when you\ndie. Jesus spoke about storing up your heavenly\nriches and doing good works so that God can pay you back when you die. \n\n\n\nToday, there are not enough ministers of the gospel. It\u2019s hard to preach to a generation of people that is more interested in loving themselves then changing their hearts to follow Jesus. It\u2019s much easier to be a Joel Osteen that has a \u201cfeel good\u201d gospel message. Men and women turn into hear him every single week to get their \u201cpower of positive thinking\u201d message. His message is not about laying down your life for Christ and becoming born again. Instead its about how to wait for God to give you some type of financial gain or blessing that will put a smile on your face. It\u2019s the \u201cfeel god gospel\u201d. \n\n\n\nIf Jesus is\ncalling you, then its because He wants you to preach the true message of salvation\nand living righteously. As a prophetic\nminister, I can tell you that we live in a lost world. There are millions of souls that will not see\nheaven when they die. We are living in a\nworld that Noah lived in before the flood. \nGod destroyed that world because of sin. \nHe destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah because of sin as well. \n\n\n\nTo be a\nminister of the gospel today means that you truly want people to see the true\ngospel. Jesus died on the cross for our\nsins. There are many false teachers and prophets in the world today telling people\nto do whatever they feel like because it makes you happy. \n\n\n\nAre You\nCalled to Be a Christian Blogger?\n\n\n\nToday, many\nmen and women are enjoying reading blogs about Christian topics. Many lost souls are looking for answers to their\nproblems. Can you offer someone hope\nthat feels like there is none? Can you\ntalk to people about why you chose Jesus and why there is not other way for you? \n\n\n\nI find that\non the internet, you can literally touch thousands of lives from around the\nworld. It is the best platform for spreading the gospel message. I say this because most Christian churches\ntoday do not have many members. Most people\nare choosing not to go to church anymore. Many churches are closing. Many men\nand women are not finding what they need from the \u201cbrick and mortar\u201d churches and\nare instead searching for it online. \n\n\n\nWouldn\u2019t it\nbe nice to have a website that touches people worldwide? The blog posts that you deliver to your audience\nwill help them to get closer to Jesus. I\nknow that you may not make as much money as working a secular job. However, if you are called to serve Jesus in\nthe ministry, you must depend on God to provide for you. \n\n\n\nBefore starting my prophetic ministry, I had no idea how I was going to make money. I felt this call in my life at the age of 13. The internet was not even invented yet. I simply prayed and asked Jesus to show me the way in which I could earn a living. \n\n\n\nWhen you\nwrite a Christian blog, you are doing the same thing as the apostle Peter did.\nYou are spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. \nSome Christian blogs receive over a million hits a month. That is a lot\nof evangelism. \n\n\n\nYou Will\nNeed the Holy Spirit\n\n\n\nWhen Jesus\ncalls you into the ministry, you will need to have the Holy Spirit guiding you\nalong the way. You will need him to be your teacher. The Holy Spirit will guide you and give you\ninner peace when witnessing to people. \n\n\n\nYou may not always\nget a positive response from people. \nMany people will tell you that they are not interested in hearing about\nJesus. That is okay because not everyone\nwill accept the Lord. Your job is to just put the message out there. If someone\nwants to follow Jesus, they will have a desire to do so. You can only pray that all people begin to\naccept Christ. \n\n\n\nIn many\ncases, people will not want to live for Jesus. They will simply want to follow\nlying and deceptive spirits. They will often want to listen to false teachings\nthat tell them that becoming born again is not necessary. \n\n\n\nJesus said\nthat many people are called to serve him, but so few are chosen. A lot of people\nthat have a desire to serve Jesus will give up serving him for one reason or another. \n\n\n\nPeter didn\u2019t\nwait for people to come to him for a Sunday morning church service to hear a word\nabout Jesus. Instead, he went out to the\npeople and preached to them. \n\n\n\nWhen the Holy\nSpirit fills you up, you begin to have confidence to preach the good news about\nJesus. The apostles of Jesus Christ felt\nthat the gospel message was so important to preach that they gave up their entire\nlives for it. They forgot about any earthly job or material possession that\nthey could have. Instead, they chose to follow Jesus and to realize that their\nrewards will be in heaven. \n\n\n\nShould You\nBuild a Christian Ministry?\n\n\n\nIn my\nopinion, you should build a Christian ministry and leave this world behind\nyou. There is nothing greater in this\nworld than preaching the gospel message. \nYes, you may not be a millionaire or build a thriving business that buys\nyou the home of your dreams. However,\nyou will wake up everyday realizing that you are servicing Jesus Christ and\nallowing him to provide for you. \n\n\n\nWhen you are\na minister, you need to walk by faith to provide for you. When you trust God for what you need, he\ncomes through for you. \n\n\n\nYou Cannot\nServe Both God and Money\n\n\n\nWhen you serve God, you live to please him by doing good for others. Your heart begins to see that it is better to give then to receive. It\u2019s better to help your brother or sister that is down and out than to buy a new car. You begin to see that your money will not last forever. When we use our money to help people, they rejoice in God because they see that the Lord has answered their prayer for help through you. \n\n\n\nLiving for\nmoney means that you rely on it to provide and take care of you. Most people\nwant to get paid for a job and then save their money to buy something in the\nfuture with it. If they use it now, they will buy something material with\nit.
