“And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil,” (2 Tim 2:24)
Pastor brother ministry is not easy. Ministry is not easy because we mainly deal with people. People are not always easy.
Even though people are not always easy, we are told that we must not be quarrelsome. In other words, we must not be people who are argumentative or who like to engage in disputes over every last thing.
Instead, we must be kind and patient. We must be able to teach. As well as we must correct our opponents with gentleness (2 Tim 2:25).
In all the work we do, we must trust that the Lord will bring growth in the life of others. We are not the Holy Spirit. We cannot cause another to change. Only the Lord can bring about true repentance in a person (2 Tim 2:25). We must be faithful to do what we are called to do and trust the Lord will bring the growth.
