As ministers, we work with people who have broken lives. Sometimes this brokenness is caused by a person’s own sin or sins. Sometimes this brokenness is cause by the sin or sins of other people. Sometimes the brokenness is caused by the fact that we live in a world that has sickness and weakness – things which are the general effects of the fall into sin of Adam and Eve. Many times it is a combination of these things. Sin is the problem. We have Jesus Christ who came into this world to save sinners. We have Jesus Christ who not only saves people from the curse of sin but also saves people from the power of sin. He can help! So, when we minister we need to think carefully about where Jesus Christ fits in every situation. How can we present the gospel as good news for the person who asks for our help? How can that good news become even better good news as Jesus Christ continues to do His work in that person and in us?
