“Ministries are Measured in Decades, not Moments. Or, How To Endure.” One of the beauties of the New Testament Church is that every member is expected to be a minister. Every Christian, as a believer-priest, ought to serve the Lord through the ministry of the local church. To do so through the difficulties and friction of life requires endurance. Momentary ministries are not hard to find. It is not uncommon for people to serve for 1, 2, 3, or even 4 years in a church. But it takes endurance to serve the Lord faithfully for 10, 15, 20, 25, or 30 years. Great ministries are measured in decades, not moments. This message contains seven important truths that will help you to endure in the Lord’s service and finish the course He has laid out for you. Download MP3.
