Saying YES! to God’s call to ministry often feels like entering a send-off rally filled with clapping and hoorays. A new adventure awaits, and you eagerly anticipate seeing lives transformed by the living God.

Yet, if you’re not careful, that awe can easily fade as the spiritual journey turns into a day-after-day, thankless grind.

Spirit-driven virtues must abide for a lifetime of ministry. Grit and humility. Contentment and faithfulness. Gratitude and holiness.

That’s why Chuck Swindoll exhorts Christian servants toward these qualities, and more, in this series of straight talks for seminary students. Receive the wisdom and encouragement you need to persevere in the spiritual harvest.
