Amen, your so right that this is a message for all. After all we are all ministers of some sorts, be it in a church, work, home, etc… we all have a message to share. His message. As He feeds us with His word, it is overflowing from us unto the lives around us.
Thank you Jack

Thank you so much Mr. Jansen for your kind words. Yes, we do have a message to share and for some reason, Bill Bright said, that only 2% of believers share their faith with non-believers which for me, for so many years, I was in that 98 percentile. Your so encouraging my friend.

Well, if it isn’t Pastor Jack himself! Did you have a merry Christmas and a happy new year? 🙂

Jack Wellman January 7, 2015 at 4:01 pm

Well if it’s not, then its another case of identify theft! LOL 🙂 Yes, I had a great Christmas and you Jack? Hope you did. Good to hear from you my brother.

Great article Jack!
Well explained…some simple, but very important points made. The simple points can sometimes be overlooked in our walk with God, but there are just as important, if not more important as they often form the foundation of our everyday living in which other parts of God’s scripture build upon.

We are all shepherds to others whoever we are, and wherever God places us.

I agree that 1 Peter 5 is an interesting study; and your article has given me much to remember. Good stuff Jack, as always!

God bless you xxx

Donna…I see that you have such a gift for encouragement. Something you wrote really impacted me so well…it blessed my heart when you wrote “We are all shepherds to others whoever we are, and wherever God places us.” That is so very, very true. In this way we are all ministers of the gospel and God holds us responsible. I love the two books of Peter because he gives us very practical and godly advice and his words are good to put into application in my own life, where I fall way, way short. Thank you my sister in Christ. You lift my spirits for sure…as you always seem to do. I thank God for you Donna…quite literally in my prayers!

Donna February 7, 2015 at 5:17 pm

Jack…me bless your heart? and i’m in your prayers?
You are so kind to me Jack 🙂

The comment about the shepherding came straight onto the page, without a thought…isn’t it amazing that God does things like this through us!!! It amazing me every time!!!

We should always seek to draw close to God and do His Will, as He honours us, and so many blessing come our way. Just by writing a comment, something I said touched you…isn’t that so powerful…and unbelievably wonderful?

We can never be sure of the impact, sometimes life-changing something we say to, or do for someone can be. The smallest seed, can yield great fruit, whether or not we ever get to see it actually ripen!

Praise be to Our God, whom with all the words He has given us, cannot fully be described not praised…His greatest is just too great for human lips to speak!

Sometimes words just don’t seem to be enough 🙁

I praise God for the special language He has given me, as through this I feel much freedom to praise, thank and generally talk with Him.

After years of feeling trapped with finding the words to talk and explain myself, God has granted me freedom through Christ, my Lord and Saviour. His gifts are treasures in my life and heart…treasure to share abundantly with all who come across my path and who come alongside of me. The gifts bestowed upon us, have great responsibility, yet great reward – they have the ability to transform the world (especially collectively) – and what greater reward is there than that – except salvation of course 🙂

God is sooooooo good!
May we always praise Him throughout our day. For He gives us more than we can ever realise.

You encourage me also Jack so much – thank you!
My love to you, my Brother in Christ,
And everyone at this end knows that this love comes with many hugs also!!! (I’m famous for my hugs this end…everyone gets one…or more)

Your Sister in Christ,
Donna xxx

Thank you as well Donna. One tiny word can make all the difference for example, if you look in the Bible for the words “but God” there are wonderful things that follow and many things that we can’t even fathom in our finite minds. Like the salvation you mentioned which is of infinite value that came at an infinite price…Jesus own blood. Wow. God is so good and so amazing.

Donna February 8, 2015 at 3:14 pm

Amen Jack! Amen to that!

You mentioned the “but God…” found in scripture; now you have mentioned that I am going to, God-Willing, search abd study those parts of the Bible which have that phrase in.

The Bible is indeed a treasure trove of wonder, excitement and pure Spirit-touching truth that powerfully transforms and builds up us for the battle ahead, in our each and every single day.

I have recently moved into a house share (I rent a bedroom within a house and share some of the other facilities) with a Sikh / Hindu family. I felt God chose this place for me, and felt that I should move in despite the fact I knew that I would be walking into satan’s territory. I knew that I would be walking into a spiritual battle…and having moved in, they (satan and his demons) have made it clear on many occasions either directly with me, or indirectly working through the family, that I am not welcome in this house. I expected it really, and knew I had to accept the call, and take up the challenge. It is hard, but God is teaching me very quickly. This first month has been quite a month, feeling at times as if I have been being spiritually attacked from inside and outside at the same time, it caused me all sorts of physical symptoms, and of course I am glad that is over now. It is amazing that something that feels so bad, is done with willingness and perseverance, because you know that you are serving The Lord. I know I am here in this house for a purpose; I may not know yet what that purpose is, but it is great to be serving Him, and that He has chosen me for such a task.

People often don’t seem to understand how important reading the Bible is, yet to those who do read it, much is gained, and obedience really does pay off. You honour God, and He honours you. You trust in Him and blessings rain down.

God is sooooooo good.
I could go on all night Jack!

Thank you for your encouragement Jack.
I haven’t been a Christian tha long; and to have feedback and encouragement and to also share our excitement of The Lord is so liberating and freeing, and building-up for me.

I enjoy talking with you Jack – thank you!

Much love, and God blessings upon your ministry,
You are a blessing to me, and I pray that God bring to you all He knows that you can use your gifts for Jack, because you are gifted in your writing. May many gain much in their walk with and search for God.

Your Sister In Christ,
Donna xxx

Jack Wellman February 8, 2015 at 7:07 pm

Thank you again too Donna. The thing is about God is how He can use broken, empty vessels and do this for His glory and people must say…”Well, it had to be God in it or else….” I know that I would rather be being attacked for my faith than to never have any persecution because for one thing, we miss out on being blessed for being persecuted and insulted for His sake…and also, we must be living it out for the Enemy doesn’t hate or attack those Christians who are undergrown witnesses who never share it.
