A Must Read - The Sacrifices Of A Christian Leader

“Then Peter began to say unto him, Lo, WE HAVE LEFT ALL, and have followed thee.” – Mark 10:28

THE SACRIFICE OF TIME:
This is the most important sacrifice of a Pastor. Without sacrificing time to be with the Lord, there will be no real fruit. Many ministers have time for everything else but the Lord. The is time for TV, socializing, computers, business and sports but there is no time for personal fellowship with the Lord. The ministry is a reflection of a man’s personal time with the Lord.

THE SACRIFICE OF YOUR MONEY: Many pastors do not know that they have to give their money to the ministry. I believe that every minister must invest personally into the ministry. Of course, you cannot do that if your money is not distinct from the church’s money. It is important that your personal possessions are distinct from the property of the church. If this distinction is not clear, you lose the blessing of giving. You have nothing to give because all you have is church property. And how can you give the church what belongs to it?

THE SACRIFICE OF YOUR COMFORTS AND WELL-BEING: There are many things in the ministry, which may take away your comforts. If you are not prepared to sacrifice the little things of life, you may never amount to much in the ministry. Insisting on certain comforts on this earth can easily be the reason for your inability to progress in the ministry. You should “set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth” Colossians 3:2. When your heart is set on things above, you will not be so fussy about things on this earth.
THE SACRIFICE OF YOUR FAMILY: Your family will make many sacrifices because of the ministry. You will have yo give up time and pleasure with your family so that you can do the work. In Luke 14, the young man refused to attend the dinner because he had “married a wife“. “And another said, I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.” – Luke 14:20. Many people do not fulfill God’s will because they try to please their wives. The Bile teaches us to love our wives. But the Bible teaches us to love God first. “If any man come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.” Luke 14:26.
