As I said in my last post there have been some fairly heavy things to deal with here at the Curatage recently.
Ministry – not just ordained ministry – but the ministry all Saints of God are called to is something that is born out of the lives we live and the ways in which we live them.
When situations and issues push in around us our natural reaction is to shut-down. That reaction though impacts the way we do the ministry that God calls us to.
Somehow we need to find the strength to carry on no matter what Satan throws at us. Anyone who has read (at least part of) C.S.Lewis’ Screwtape Letters will know what I mean. That fictionalised account of how the enemy’s gameplan among God’s people is well worth reading. Knowing how the devil likes to engage us helps us overcome his strategy when he brings it to play in our lives.
