CHARACTERISTICS OF A CHRISTIAN MINISTER

While studying for a message on 1 Thessalonians 2 this Sunday, I came across this helpful list that describes the characteristics of true Christian ministry:

Verse A Godly Minister …
2:3 Speaks the truth and has pure motives in doing so.
2:4 Seeks to please God, not people.
2:5 Does not flatter; is not greedy.
2:6 Does not seek people’s praise.
2:7 Is gentle, like a mother caring for her children.
2:8 Loves the believers and willingly shares his life and the gospel with them.
2:9 Works hard so as not to be a burden to anyone while preaching the Good News.
2:10 Is pure, honest, and faultless toward the believers.
2:11 Treats the believers as a good father would treat his own children.
2:12 Willingly pleads, encourages, and urges the believers to live in a way that God would consider worthy.
