What are we?
People look at ministry in two ways
Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
What is our goal?
Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit; so shall ye be my disciples.
What is fruit?
People being saved is one kind
Now I would not have you ignorant, brethren, that oftentimes I purposed to come unto you, (but was let hitherto,) that I might have some fruit among you also, even as among other Gentiles.
The fruit of the Spirit
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, klongsuffering, kgentleness, goodness, faith, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
For it hath pleased them of zMacedonia and aAchaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem. 27 It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things. 28 When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain.
Ministry is a garden
For we are labourers together with God: ye are God’s husbandry, ye are God’s building.
