Ministry Is a Four-Letter Word

Artwork for Straight Talk for Seminary Students

In his sermon on John 13, Chuck Swindoll takes us to that intimate moment between Jesus and His disciples when their Lord and Teacher girded Himself with a towel and washed their dirt-covered feet like a servant.

In that moment, Jesus taught them the meaning of love, not only by command but by example. That simple, four-letter verb forms our ministry impulse. Chuck urges all ministers to return to the basics that they might abide and walk with a sincere love for others.
