Christlikeness – The ministry of Christ

You don’t know the ministry of Christ until you’ve experienced:

– people that you’ve poured your life out for tell you that you have no love

– people that you patiently teach by example tell you that you’re too deep and spooky and useless

– people that you actively serve tell you that you’re rebellious

– people that you respect and show kindness to spitting in your face

If you can suffer those things, and still serve in love and refuse to run away, then you will know the ministry of Christ.

Ephesians 4:32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ‘s sake hath forgiven you.

Your best sign of Christlikeness is not signs & wonders, or your impact on others, or your display of power or miracles… but it’s when you are rejected by the people you give your life for – and still somehow choose obedience and love.

  • THIS IS THE HIGH CALLING!!!
  • EMBRACE the SUFFERING.
  • BE like JESUS.
  • LOVE your ENEMIES!

His enemies were the people He helped, fed, loved, and gave His life for.

John 1:11

He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

When you do what you do for the Lord – He will reward you! He knows how to get it to you when people don’t think you deserve it.
