Sermonette: Who Needs a Minister?
Respect for the Ministry
Given 09-Jul-11; 18 minutes
Bill Onisick, defining a fruit as a structure that contain seeds, asserts that we must produce fruit through our positive actions and behaviors, generated by God's Holy Spirit to produce love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, goodness, faithfulness, and self-control. We acknowledge the importance of the ministry in assisting the members to bear fruit. It is to the advantage of the flock to adhere to the teaching of the minister who feeds and ministers to it. The ministry, designated as the guardian of the flock's welfare, warrants respect and courtesy from the flock.
