2 Corinthians 6:4-10 (KJV) An Approved Ministry

2 Corinthians 6:4-10 (KJV)
But in all things approving ourselves as the ministers of God, in much patience, in afflictions, in necessities, in distresses,In stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labours, in watchings, in fastings;By pureness, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by love unfeigned,By the word of truth, by the power of God, by the armour of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,By honour and dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true;As unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and, behold, we live; as chastened, and not killed;As sorrowful, yet alway rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
This is the Scriptural way a preacher’s ministry is approved. Notice:
  • Nothing is said of number of professions
  • Nothing is said of number of baptisms
  • Nothing is said of conference speaking invitations 
  • Nothing is said of awards and plaques 
  • Nothing is said of recognition in magazines
The truly approved preachers are very likely little known preachers. He values only the approval of the Lord. That probably makes him less approved by others.
