7 Quotes about ministry

“We must deal with things the way they are. Don’t just leave things the way they are without trying to get them to where they ought to be.” -- R. L. Vaughn

“Ministry is often the conflict of the ideal and the real.” -- Dave Miller

“Beware of any work for God that causes or allows you to avoid concentrating on Him. A great number of Christian workers worship their work.” -- Oswald Chambers

“Ministry is the least important thing. You cannot not minister if you are in communion with God and live in community.” -- Henri Nouwen

“It is one of the ironies of the ministry that the very man who works in God's name is often hardest put to find time for God. The parents of Jesus lost Him at church, and they were not the last ones to lose Him there.” -- Vance Havner

“It's amazing how many people go into the ministry who don't really like to be with people.” -- John Piper
