Envy Is A ‘Ministry Killer‘ – Pastor Danzerl Cautions Church Leaders

The Kete-Krachi Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Pastor Joseph Danzerl has admonished ministers and their wives to eschew envy in their ministry and line of work because it could lead them to a ‘premature end’ in ministry.

The Area Head made this admonition during the Area monthly ministers and wives prayer meeting held at the Lakeside Central Assembly auditorium.

He spoke on the topic, “Envy Among Church Leaders: A Hindrance to Building A Glorious Church,” with Psalm 37, 1 Corinthians 13:4 and John 3:26-30 as his main scripture references.

According to Pastor Danzerl, envy is a feeling of unhappiness and a feeling of discontentment which is aroused by someone else’s possessions or qualities. “Like a chameleon with many faces, envy breeds hatred among church leaders making them unsupportive to a good vision that will build up an organisation,” he explained.

He emphasised that Christians ought to exercise their God-given abilities with love for one another since it is the only way to make their abilities and giftings effective.

“Instead of envying someone rather show more love to them and look for ways to contribute to the needs of others,” he indicated.

The Kete-Krachi Area Head also called on church leaders to always seek a fresh anointing, acknowledge the Holy Spirit and ask Him for the needed help in their ministry. He also advised them to focus on God alone and never compare themselves with anyone, bearing in mind that “the success of a colleague is the success of oneself.”
