Summary: A mentor once taught me that it was not my job to do the work of the ministry. It is my job to build others to do the work of the ministry.
I had a mentor early in ministry. There were two questions my mentor said to me over and over. Every single meeting it was the same thing. He would ask me the same two questions: What are you doing right now? and Who are you training to do that thing? Every single meeting he would incessantly ask me these two questions. Before too long, I determined that I should just do what he was telling me to do. I mean, after all, this is what pastors do, right? They train others.
Well, I did start to train and teach others to do the very things I had been doing. Years past and I actually thought that the concept of training was standard issue in every pastor or ministry leader. I thought this is what pastors did.
I was shocked to learn that most ministry leaders were doing ministry all by themselves. This likely means that if you are watching this video you are doing ministry yourself. You see, my mentor told me over and over and over that it was not my job to do the work of the ministry. It is my job to build others to do the work of the ministry.
Stop doing all the work yourself and learn to do your real job. You see, the scriptures say that your job is to build up the body to do the work of the ministry. Your job is not to do the work of the ministry.
