What Gospel Ministry Looks Like

September 20, 2020 Speaker: Fred Greco Series: 2 Corinthians

Topic: AM Service Passage: 2 Corinthians 6:3–6:10

When a person comes to believe in Jesus Christ as Savior, that is not the end, but rather a beginning. It is the beginning of a life of serving Jesus – ministering in His name so that others will hear the gospel and be saved. Paul was a great example of what that should look like. He was tireless in gospel work, preaching, teaching, and serving. He reminds us that ministering in Jesus’ name is not easy or comfortable. It involves trials and pain, criticisms, and slander. But it also brings the power of God to aid in our efforts. This is “What Gospel Ministry Looks Like” (2 Corinthians 6:3-10).

I. The Work

II. The Persistence

III. The Reaction

Questions for consideration: (1) How can we put obstacles in the way of others that hinder them from seeing Jesus? What do we do to avoid that? (2) What circumstances have there been in your life that threaten to take you “off mission?” (3) How could Paul continue on, knowing he was being slandered? How does Paul’s mindset help you as you minister to people?
