Don't Hold Back
Ministry leaders, discipling others often results in hurt, disappointment and betrayal. They did it to Jesus, so it will definitely happen to you.
Resist the temptation to withhold your trust and investment in others based on past situations and relationships. Remember, if you indeed walk in holiness, it's the Christ in you that is rejected. Don't take it personal. Just realize that many will not like you when you stand on the truth.
It's okay. Do not cast blame. Do not hold grudges. And do not take it personally. Your love for God's people must remain strong and intact. You signed up to be used of God. In doing so, you will also be used by people. That's the position of a servant. Rejoice, and press forward. Plant your seeds and know that God will always bring the increase, whether you are there to see it or not.
