A Ministry of Reconciliation
Paul talks at length about his ministry and what his whole goal of ministry is throughout the Corinthians books.

And, be encouraged by Tom Pounder as he share this devotional about it.
Thank Your Ministry Partners
Ministry is tough, especially if you are doing it alone. However, if you have been blessed to have partners in ministry, take time to thank them for all the support and help they have been for you over your time doing ministry. Anna Mari shares from2 Corinthians 7 and in this devotional about the importance of thanking your ministry partners regularly.

We all have been gifted with talents from God. But, are you using those gifts and talents for God’s glory and work? In 2 Corinthians 9, Paul talks about this. Read the passage and be encouraged as Tom Hamberger shares in this devotional about how you can do that every day.
