I’m currently working on my bible study for tonight. It’s a good passage of scripture, fairly simple and not too difficult. Frankly I love these easier passages because I don’t have to push myself to dig deep to find application. Yes, I know that i’m wrong in my motives; however, it’s a difficult mindset to overcome. Its difficult when you have a hard passage and you study hours upon hours and still you feel like your application (the most important part of a study, strictly my opinion) is less then satisfactory. Honestly, its pretty brutal being in ministry full time. Don’t get me wrong I absolutely love it, yet it isn’t getting any easier. Hmmm, something that dawned on me while I was reading over this little blogpost. I’m not doing ministry for myself or even for the youth kids, that I love so dearly, but for the King of Kings and His Son. That is all the motivation one needs, because there is none better than He. That means i should put all my effort in everything that I do for His glory. I love it when the Lord changes your perspective on life, or rather remind us where we should be with Him. God is good all the time and all the time God is good.
