Ministry Never
Goes On A Holiday

“Your enemy the devil
prowls around like a roaring lion
looking for someone to devour.”

1 Peter 5:8

There are certain professions where there is never a break in service.

At all times there are police on duty, soldiers manning a post, and fireman at the ready. All stations are manned because the dangers that are ever present are always at hand.

Ministry is exactly the same because like today’s verse, there is an evil adversary that seeks to destroy people, communities, and churches – and it is those in ministry that stand daily at the gates to recognize this threat and push back against this enemy to the people that they are responsible for.

While pastors and ministers of the gospel are often portrayed and conceived as “Wally Cox” kind of namby-pamby persons, the true ministers of God instead are Spiritual Special Forces that ‘fight the good fight’ every day and push back against the attacks of the devil on a battle field that is real but visible to the uninitiated:

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood,
but against the rulers, against the authorities,
against the powers of this dark world and
against the spiritual forces of evil
in the heavenly realms.”

Ephesians 6:12

Ministers and ministry never go on holiday, and while they fight these spiritual battles each day, we need to hold them up daily prayer to carry on the fight. Remember those in ministry and lift them up in prayer today - and every day.
