Many guys wonder why God would give them such a strong desire for ministry but not open a door to satisfy it. I like to tell them to interpret that desire as a mandate to prepare. It’s not a license to quit your job or plant a church, at least not yet. It’s a call to prepare your soul, your life, and your mind for the joys and rigors of the ministry.
