Product Description

Product Description

Do you sometimes lose sight of the core of your ministry?
Do you feel overwhelmed by the needs that surround you?
Do you wish you had some real encouragement?

Every pastor experiences feelings of inadequacy or loneliness at some time in ministry. Serving others and serving God is not an easy task. Warren Wiersbe, the "pastor's pastor," knows the struggles and triumphs a life of service brings.

On Being a Servant of God invites you to listen in on thirty short "armchair chats." With candor and sensitivity, Wiersbe shares what he wishes he had known about ministering to others when he began his own Christian pilgrimage. Let his years of experience and wise counsel bring comfort to your soul and energy to your tasks.


Warren W. Wiersbe is a pastor, author, and editor of more than one hundred books, including The Dynamics of Preaching and Through the Year with Warren W. Wiersbe. Today his primary ministry is serving others through writing, teaching, and speaking at conferences.

Format: Paperback
Wiersbe's book is a gem for the pastor and layperson. As mentioned in an earlier review, you will feel as if Wiersbe is right there beside you when reading the book. The conversational tone of the book makes it enjoyable to read.
Wiersbe also presents many excellent points, some of which are:
1. A sense of humor is necessary for the ministry.
2. Let books enrich your life and ministry.
3. The joy and fear of the Lord frees us from the fear of
people.
4. Our loyaly to the Lord is reflected in how we treat
others.
5. Do not fret about the future, for it belongs to God!
6. Do not let the devil get a stronghold in your life.
7. Our service should be based on obedience, not feelings.
All in all, an excellent and highly recommended read!

Format: Paperback
I was doing some research for a book project and found that this book by Wiersbe was often quoted. So, I picked up the book for myself and soon found out why it was so popular among pastors and lay leaders.
Weirsbe delivers a warm, easy-to-read primer on following God. The Christian life is really about sacrifice and service. Why are we here? For ourselves or to glorify our God?
Whether you're a pastor or a plumber, a songleader or a salesman, this is a great book to read if you're heart's desire is to be a servant of God.

HASH(0x9e4098dc) out of 5 stars A goldmine of practical wisdom! Feb. 12 1999
By ronbridget@aol.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is ideally suited for younger ministers or more experienced pastors who recognize their limits and their need for wisdom. I can hardly imagine any preacher, young or old, who would not benefit from reading this short book. Dr. Wiersbe gives us "down-to-earth" nuts and bolts type teaching here rather than the obscure ramblings so common in many handbooks and textbooks. While reading this book, I felt like I was "sitting down across a log" with a seasoned pastor, who gave me advice on everything from humor to finances to facing opposition. I kept my highlighter handy so I can refer back to this volume frequently. This is the type resource I NEED!

An Excellent Experiential Theology of Servant hood by Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe

Here are three nuggets of enlightenment:

"Ministry takes place when divine resources meet human needs through loving channels to the glory of God "

God doesn't want us to have "ministry by imitation". He wants "ministry by incarnation" what Paul wrote about in Philippians 2:13 "For it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure".

"To consider persons and events and situations only in the light of their effect upon myself is to live on the doorstep of hell"

HASH(0x9e43509c) out of 5 stars For Ministers and ministers March 2 2014
By Roy Wallen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wiersbe is a prolific author, accomplished teacher, and capable pastor. In this book, he offers a series of “chats” (chapters) that help guide the reader to understand what it takes to serve God. Although this book could be readily used by anyone who seeks to serve God, either in full-time ministry or as a believer who wants to adopt a servant’s heart, the book clearly comes from the perspective of a senior pastor who I seeking to minister to full-time workers. The author encourages both lay and professional Christian workers to apply the principles in the book but most of the examples provided are for the professional Christian minister.

The chapters are short presentations of themes without titles. However, they could be titled, perhaps as shown below. In any event, these are the themes that Wiersbe presents, whether he would have identified the chapters as such or not. As he notes, we all would do well to heed these messages here, whether in the Ministry or ministry.
