There is nothing that distorts ministry more than believing you have to make a living by it. So much of our life in Christ today is corrupted because people want to use ministry to secure their income…. Until you are free to trust God to provide for you, Jake, he will not entrust his people to you. Just don’t think you’re the one doing the providing. Get this lesson, Jake. Living in the freedom of God’s provision is critical to what God has for you.
