B. He must have the right message (vs. 11)
C. He must have the right heart (vs. 12)

II. A Good Minister Needs Greek

Questions for consideration: (1) What does it mean to have grace? Do you? (2) What do you like to read? Does your list include the Bible? How often do you read? (3) What gifts has God given you? How can they be used to His glory?
