THE MINISTRY ROLLER COASTER – How to Stay Faithful During the Ups and Downs

The ministry is much like a roller coaster ride.  It is simultaneously exhilarating and terrifying.  Learn how to stay faithful and focused during the ups and downs of God’s work.

The Ministry Roller Coaster be stay faithful

Ministry life has plenty of ups and downs with twists and turns.  It is exciting until things start to get complicated, and you say to yourself, “What was I thinking?!”

In October 2019, I decided to take my three children to Six Flags New England in Agawam, MA.  I realized that with the busyness of ministry and the complications with my wife’s health, we hadn’t done anything special with the children during the summer.

“We must learn to manage the ups and downs of life to succeed in God’s will. ” Click To Tweet

Six Flags had a big sale where I could get season tickets for next year (and unlimited access this year) for the price of a one day visit.  It seemed like a no-brainer, so I bought the tickets and set a date.

When we drove up to the park, the first thing we could see was the steel backbones of roller coasters rising into the sky.  The kids were excited and wanted to ride them first.

I must confess that I don’t really like roller coasters.

Christian Men Wanted

There seems to be a shortage of Christian manhood today. Where are the men of faith and action in this generation? We need courageous Christian men!

Christian Men Wanted ministry

Earnest Shackleton placed this ad while looking for a crew for an Antarctic expedition.  It is said that 5,000 men applied for the job.  The ad understated the dangers.  Shackleton’s 1914-1917 Antarctic expedition became a breathtaking tale of hardship and survival.

You get saved by believing the Gospel.  You become a disciple by continuing in God's Word.   Click To Tweet

The response to this ad reminds us that some are drawn to seemingly impossible tasks.  Mainstream Christianity is marketing the life of a Christian as a neverending party with few rules and even fewer expectations.  Our Lord presented a very different concept of discipleship.

3 Reasons To Start A Bus Ministry

The bus ministry is one of the greatest evangelistic tools of the last 50 years. Its benefits don’t stop there. Learn three good reasons for your church to have a bus ministry.

3 Reasons To Start A Bus Ministry

Mark 10:14–15

But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein.

Jesus loves the little children. He wants them to come to Him.

Our Lord rebuked the disciples and taught them to allow the children access to Himself. In fact, He used a child as an example of salvation.

One soul would be worth a lifetime labor, yet we are privileged to win multitudes to Christ with the bus ministry! Click To Tweet

Children show us the way of salvation. They exhibit two qualities necessary for salvation.

  1. humility
  2. faith

If you don’t come to Christ with child-like faith, you cannot be saved.

Every church should have an outreach plan to reach children for Christ.
