The Centrality of the Gospel as applied to ministry:

Such confidence we have through Christ toward God. Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God, who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant…

2 Cor. 3:4-6


Sometimes I think maybe I shouldn't be doing any ministry because I'm not ready or I'm not good enough. Paul in Corinthians says it's not up to us to make ourselves ready or good enough. Our adequacy to be servants of the new covenant is from God.

To be always ready to follow Jesus, because He's always among us and His call is His presence, and to follow Him instead of seeking our own, and yet to know and know again and truly, that by our works we are unprofitable servants, yet by His grace still welcomed and fêted as sons—this is how the good news involves us.
