Ministry attracts all manner of people. Your calling and ministry will attract divine support, human approval and other people who will not believe in you and your ministry.You will have your share of accusation,criticism and persecution in ministry.Success in life and ministry brings fame, glory, fulfillment accompanied with persecutions.Persecutions are tools of destructions and traps of the enemy to keep you from fulfilling your calling and ministry.They are weapons of defense used by failures, the defeated, the discontented, the backward and the unfulfilled to justify their positions. They are tools used by those who are caught in the vehicle of comparison to stop you from fulfilling your purpose. Persecution is part of the program for a faithful believer and sometimes criticisms, accusations and persecutions are appropriate because we have made a bad decision. Other times the persecutions, accusations and criticisms we face are of a more aggressive kind, and involves a person or group going out of their way to fight the purpose of God for our lives.How do you handle criticisms, accusations and persecutions in ministry? Stay focused on what God called and gifted you to do. Use criticisms, accusations and persecutions to your advantage. Learn from them and move on with your life.Expect them and handle them when they come. Silence is powerful.
Let me know how you have handled criticism, accusations and persecution. But he shall receive an hundred fold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life:
Mark 10:30
