Life In Student Ministry
  • Doing Ministry out of Personal Insecurity

    1,102 views 5 years ago
    I used to think I was really passionate about youth ministry because I loved serving people and serving the Lord.

    I want to feel valuable to people. When I serve people in ministry, often I love it because I feel valuable and my own personal insecurities and misplaced identity are affirmed. Instead, I want to firmly root my passion for serving the Lord in my identity in Christ and in being created in His image.
