A VIEW OF MINISTRY

PART 2

MARK 9:41-50

1. What in the world is Solomon trying to tell us in Ecclesiastes 10:1?

Because of your position in Christ, the way you live will either be sweet smelling or it will give off a foul order. It will give off the fragrance of Jesus or the fragrance of this world.

2. As Christians, what are the things we are to focus upon in regards to our service to others? See Romans 14:19.

We are to be at peace with people, looking out for their own good. Helping to build them up in the things of God.

3. In Romans 12:18, does Paul mean we are not to live at peace with everyone?

We are to try, but not everyone will receive it. He is not saying we are not to try to live at peace with each other, but if they refuse, there is not much you can do but continue to love them and pray for them.

4. What does Paul mean in Romans 12:21?

There is so much evil out there and the way to overcome it is by doing good. Don’t let evil overcome you, but you allow the Spirit of God to empower you to stand strong in the faith.
