One of the reason’s why we have a lot of problem’s today in the ministerial circles, is because, the majority of people being ordained into the ministry think that the GOSPEL is a message!
The GOSPEL is not just a message but a PERSON – JESUS CHRIST!
You can never preach the MESSAGE of the Gospel without knowing the GOSPEL of the message!
So much so, you can never REPRESENT a person you DO NOT KNOW.
To be sent to represent a person you do not know, is to do a colossal DAMAGE to his character and personality and representing ones self instead him.
I think we are ordaining people who do not KNOW the LORD into His ministry and I suggest we stop rating people by the exhibition of charisma, instead of CHRIST NATURE AND CHARACTER!
It is one thing to REPRESENT (stand in His place) and RE – PRESENT (Introduce again) Him to the people!
The first thing JESUS did before considering to send men to REPRESENT Him was to call them to HIMSELF & not to SELF!
The most qualified to do the former is he who honestly does the latter.
