In order for the work of a man of God to be profitable, he has to combine his grief for the souls with all of the means of communication available. That will make his work develop more rapidly and most importantly, with quality. Simply relying only on your basic communication strategies will guarantee your failure, as the spirit of a "conformist" will soon settle in. Considering that the man of God really has his life on the altar, meaning body, soul and spirit, let's look at his seven commandments:
First: Have the same consideration to the members as he would to God, for it is written: "If someone says, "I love God," and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen, how can he love God whom he has not seen?" (1 John 4:20).
Second: Cry for the people God has sent and their battles. Each man of God represents the Lord Jesus, and each person that comes to the church is sent by the Holy Spirit, in order that His servant show them the path to salvation. Once saved, they will glorify the Lord Jesus. This is why He said: "No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him..." (John 6:44).
The Lord Jesus says: "Let the priests, who minister to the LORD, Weep between the porch and the altar; Let them say, "Spare Your people, O LORD, And do not give Your heritage to reproach, That the nations should rule over them. Why should they say among the peoples, ‘Where is their God?'" (Joel 2:17)
Third: Never do God's work unfaithfully. The prophet Jeremiah says: "Cursed is he who does the work of the Lord deceitfully..." (Jeremiah 48:10) Doing the work of God deceitfully is like facing the worst enemy with a simple weapon.
Fourth: Have a hunger and thirst to save souls. As long as this doesn't happen, the man of God feels exactly like Sarah, Rachel and Hannah. They felt bitterness in their soul, embarrassment and humiliation. These feelings always accompany the man of God that is barren. For this reason, he's not ashamed to cry before God, asking for souls.
Fifth: Have happiness and joy seeing, before him, people being born of God. There is no greater satisfaction for those whose life is on the altar than seeing people who once belonged to the kingdom of darkness, today filled with the Holy Spirit, reflecting joy and happiness in their face, glorifying the name of The Lord Jesus Christ.
Sixth: Do not be jealous or envious of the development of your colleague's ministry. On the contrary, rejoice with his growth and pray so that he may bear even more fruit. Like that woman in the parable of the Lost Coin, agreeing with what the Lord Jesus taught: ""Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!'" (Luke 15: 8:9)
Seventh: Do not worry only about winning souls for the Lord Jesus but mainly, making them disciples. This, overall, is the most important characteristic accentuated in an anointed Man of God. He worries about making disciples more than anything else, for he knows that the development of the Kingdom of God in this world depends on men who have the same character as the Lord Jesus.
