Contentment in Ministry comes from Making Disciples

A true disciple maker is not worried about numbers and fame, because he has more rewards and fruit in other people’s ministries than his own.
2 John 1:4 I rejoiced GREATLY that I found of thy children walking in TRUTH, as we have received a COMMANDMENT from the FATHER.

Yes, There Are Consequences and Repercussions to Rejecting Gods Messengers

Jesus wanted His Disciples and messengers to know the blessings AND the consequences for the cities that He sent them to.

This way, they would be able to go with confidence and care for the people they encountered, knowing that their message would bring results whether it was received or not.

They were instructed to vocalize the blessing of the kingdom of God and they were instructed to vocalize the warning of the kingdom of God.

Luke 10:
8 And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: 9 and heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you.

10 But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, 11 Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. 12 But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city.

Do you want Fans for self or Disciples for Christ?

When you take the “teeth” or the cutting conviction and warnings out of your teaching and preaching, you end up with fans for yourself instead of disciples for Christ. Fans are good if you’re trying to build a kingdom of man, but fans are useless for the Kingdom of God.

Romans 11:22 Behold then the kindness and severity of God ; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God’s kindness, if you continue in His kindness ; otherwise you also will be cut off.

Wisdom: children and disciples

Wisdom is not proven by your money, fame, power, or current status,  but by your Long Term Results: do your children and your disciples stay faithful to God long term, living pure in the truth, and bearing fruit for God consistently?

Matt 11 Wisdom is justified by her children.
