If I am to live in the flesh, that means fruitful labor for me.
Being afflicted should not cause ministry to be affected. Difficult situations should never cause a loss of joy. In fact, there is only one circumstance that should cause our joy to subside. Sin is what causes joy loss in a believers life. Sin corrupts our fellowship with God. The only way to restore joy is to repent from sin and return to worship. Paul’s affliction never caused him to stop ministry. He even continued to operate despite being in prison! Never let enemy opposition stop you from operating as a Christian.
Pray to faithfully proclaim the gospel.
