Romans 11:13, “For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I MAGNIFY MY OFFICE:”
Sadly, the casual approach to life, work, and even to all things ministry, has even found its sly way into our fundamental churches and our fundamental circles. Sloppy has seemed to become the unpronounced slogan of so many. I want to echo the words of the Apostle of the Gentiles, in this hour,…“I MAGNIFY MY OFFICE”! This attitude must start in the pulpit, if the pew is ever to aim at it, as their aspirations, as well.
There are 3 obvious ways that I daily MAGNIFY MY OFFICE AS A MINISTER:
Dress is direction! Tragic when news anchors can find a suit and necktie reporting the news, but preachers of the gospel, can’t find a suit and necktie to DELIVER THE GOOD NEWS OF THE GOSPEL! Some preachers have let Shaggy, from Scooby Doo, become the fashion consultant.
Since being a God called preacher is the highest calling on planet earth, I shouldn’t act like a clown, cruise ship director nor a comedian!
Words are the tools of a man of God. He ought to always be making sure that he’s extremely articulate. Best not to shoot off at the mouth, because that’s how you’ll get shot in the foot!
