Simple Ministry Strategy

August 5, 2009

“When Joseph came to them in the morning, he saw that they were troubled. So he asked Pharaoh’s officers who were with him in custody in his master’s house, ‘Why are your faces downcast today?’ They said, ‘We have had dreams, and there is no one to interpret them.’ And Joseph said to them, “Do not interpretations belong to God? Please tell them to me.’” Gen 40:6-8

Joseph exemplifies a simple formula for ministry:
1.    Tune in to the condition of the people around you.
2.    Ask about and show interest in their condition.
3.    Be a channel for God to meet the need.

Sorry if you were looking for some fresh, innovative, culturally-up-to-date strategy. This is the timelss, and thus ever relevant, strategy that always meets the human need: LOVE.
