Preparations for Ministry is not something that many want to face. There is an expectation for a trophy for participation, but advice, oversight and years of preparation are necessary to achieve the goals that God has set before us.
The apostle Paul had been called to be an apostle on the road to Damascus in Acts 9:15. But after possibly 14 years of testing and loyal service, was then successfully separated unto God to be an apostle.
First he was “called” then in “helps,” then he progressed to the office of a “teacher” and finally the office of an “apostle.” Why? The reason: Paul was faithful to promote the Lord and not himself (see 1 Corinthians 4:2).
