Character is more important in ministry than skills. And “balance” is never a word you want to apply to a person’s core character and commitments.

Many years ago I was in a discussion with a faculty colleague (not at Biola) to whom I was lamenting the theological drift of Brian MacLaren. The minister sees all the potential in a young Christian, no matter how long they have been saved. They see the calling that God has on their lives and the things God wants them to do through them.

And, they begin to invest in them so that they start to mature in the Word of God; they start to do the works of service they were called to do.2/ Here are ten key points about work drawn from the Bible.

They provide a practical foundation for Christians asking what the Bible says about how we should approach our Bible makes it clear that work matters to God.

No matter what your profession or occupation – whether you’re a parent, a bus driver, an artist or an engineer – God cares about your work. We are using the phrase "the Christian worker" to refer to a wide variety of Christians, including parents, teachers, pastors, evangelists, missionaries, disciplers, Christian education directors, youth and children's workers, administrators, church music directors, and seminary and Christian college professors -- anyone who ministers to others.

The Christian educator should minutely identify the qualities of character of Christ for reproduction in the student. In the enterprise of learning, the teacher must then enforce the practice and habit of conduct appropriate to the child's present development that will produce the desired character in due season.

A Christian Leader in the Workplace. A friend of mine who worked for A. Edwards told me that their CEO was involved in Bible The importance of the work and character of a Christian minister book for professionals and was intentional about encouraging others to know and love God.

A Realistic Picture of Christian Ministry. In 2 TimothyPaul shows how the charge and the challenge of pastoral ministry provide Timothy with an opportunity to display his character: “As for you, always be sober-minded, endure suffering, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.”.

A: Christ lived out His character. Christlikeness involves functioning in His power as well as living in the character of His person. I am working on a book dealing with the fact that we have not seen the formation of Christ in people until, in the power of the Holy Spirit, they minister to human need as readily as they live out godly behavior.

We must do what we can today to conform to His image, the image of Jesus Christ. Our character is important because it is a demonstration of our heart, and just like my garden, I will reap a bountiful harvest of righteousness on The Day if I tend to my character. It is always a matter of the heart.
