Having the Right View of Pastoral Ministry

In his book Dangerous Calling Paul Tripp reminds readers (pastors) what it takes to have the right view of ministry.

Pastor, do you examine yourself daily by humbly placing yourself before the one mirror you can trust, the mirror of the Word of God? (pg. 157)

Gospel driven, Christ-centered ministry, one that gives grace to those who hear, doesn't start with theological knowledge; no, it starts with a humble heart.  It starts with the recognition of your own need and the acknowledgement that you and I are more like than unlike the people to whom God has called us to minister. (pg. 163)
