What would you change?

J.T. Parish

     A man asked a very provocative question: “What would you change about your ministry if you had it to do over?” Surprisingly, not too much! One preacher said he would spend more time bringing comfort to hurting people. Another said he would do more evangelism and simply get people ready for heaven.

     If I had it all to do over I would have started sooner. I would have gotten saved at nine instead of nineteen and I would have received the Baptism of the Holy Spirit immediately instead of several years later. Secondly, I would have worried less and trusted God more. Thirdly, I would have developed my strong points and let someone else do the things where I have no gifts or talents.

     The ministry has been a very fulfilling, happy, and challenging life. I praise God for the High privilege of serving in the Ministry of our Lord Jesus Christ! What would you change if you had your life to do over? What can you change today that will make a difference ten years from now?
