“The Assignment: Who gets the glory?”
As you begin to discover your assignment, remember the ministry attitude Jesus modeled. It is fine to be excited about your assignment. In fact, God wants you to be passionate about it. After all, He designed your assignment just for you and you for your assignment. The apostle Paul felt the same way about the task he was assigned.
It’s natural to feel excited and confident in your assignment, but guard against the human tendency to allow confidence and enthusiasm to become pride and arrogance.
Always carry out ministry with the ultimate goal of pointing people to Jesus and bringing glory to God, not yourself.
Respond to the following in your journal:
