A Heart of Ministry for Every Believer
Nehemiah 11-12

Nehemiah 9:31
“for you are a gracious and merciful God.”

Every believer should have a ministry mentality and a heart to serve others for the glory of God.

Mark 10:45
“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

2 Corinthians 4:5
“For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.”

As we examine the section that lists the names of the Jewish citizens, four qualities rise to the surface revealing key ingredients for a person to possess a ministry heart.

What is needed to have a heart for ministry?

1. A willingness to go where God calls you to go!

2. A willingness to do what God wants you to do!

1 Corinthians 12:14-25
"For the body does not consist of one member but of many. If the foot should say, ‘Because I am not a hand, I do not belong to the body,” that would not make it any less a part of the body. And if the ear should say, ‘Because I am not an eye, I do not belong to the body,’ that would not make it any less a part of the body. If the whole body were an eye, where would be the sense of hearing? If the whole body were an ear, where would be the sense of smell? But as it is, God arranged the members in the body, each one of them, as he chose. If all were a single member, where would the body be? As it is, there are many parts, yet one body. The eye cannot say to the hand, ‘I have no need of you,’ nor again the head to the feet, ‘I have no need of you.’ On the contrary, the parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and on those parts of the body that we think less honorable we bestow the greater honor, and our unpresentable parts are treated with greater modesty, which our more presentable parts do not require. But God has so composed the body, giving greater honor to the part that lacked it, that there may be no division in the body, but that the members may have the same care for one another.”

Ephesians 2:10
“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

3. A willingness to serve without recognition or regard.

2 Corinthians 4:5
“For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.”

Hebrews 6:10
“For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.”

4. A willingness to be a servant to people not for personal gain but for the glory of God.

Revelation 4:11
“Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.”

1 Corinthians 10:31
“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

Matthew 5:16
“In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”
