Patiently Correct, Rebuke and Encourage

REV Central Park

The marriage of two be it people or ministries has got to be the greatest challenge one will ever face in life, but also the most rewarding. 

We are coming to the close of our first month with Rock Solid Foundations and Revolution Ministries being united as one.  It has been a great four weeks met with many challenges and opportunities to walk in love and choosing to walk in the Spirit so as not to fulfill the lust of the flesh.

My challenge has been for the past two years how to do as Paul instructed Timothy in 2 Timothy 4:2)… “Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching.”  (The New Living Bible)

Faith works by love.   Our motivation no matter what when it comes to ministry is and must always be “LOVE”.  We must desire to see the people that we are called to lead reach their God-ordained destinies and go beyond where we are. 

Paul admonished Timothy to “PATIENTLY” correct, rebuke and encourage his people with good teaching.  As leaders, it must be the desire of our heart to patiently, lovingly and gently by the Holy Spirit of God,  to lead them, steer them and point them in the direction of success before God and man.

Father, today we thank you for the Apostle Paul and his example and instruction of leadership.   We ask you to perfect that part of our calling to the place that we would never injure or cripple these little ones.  We ask that you would enable us to bring healing and wholeness even in our correction.  We trust that you are leading us and anointing us to impart to them and to minister “good teaching” to them that they may impart and minister to others.  In Jesus’ Name….. Amen
