MINISTERING TO OTHERS IS A COMMANDMENT AND A COVENANT
“Then Jesus told them this parable: 4 “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? 5 And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders 6 and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ 7 I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”—Luke 15:3-7
We use the word minister often, but do we understand what it means, and more important, do we help the members of our congregation understand that ministering is one of the most important responsibilities in their callings?
The Savior Jesus Christ set the ultimate example of ministering. He sought out individuals, one by one, and offered them comfort, encouragement, and—most of all—love. Charity is the hallmark of the Savior’s life, and Christ-like love defines what ministering is all about. Jesus Christ is the Master at conveying to others that they are important. To leave the ninety-nine in order to find the one lost sheep who repents.
