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 30 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.

- Offers material that ties into the companion title On Being a Leader for God
Warren Wiersbe has written this work in such a personal and passionate fashion that at many times I felt like I was at a fireside chat both as a listener and a convener. This is my story—in fact, this is the story of all who seek to be authentic servants of God in a pseudo-religious world. Those who read it will experience ‘open eyes’ and ‘burning hearts’ as they revisit their own personal Emmaus Road.

Every page, indeed nearly every paragraph, of Wiersbe’s revised edition of On Being a Servant of God contains wisdom and insight for practical ways to be a servant leader—to be a servant of God. As a business executive, I’m grateful for Wiersbe’s straightforward, no-nonsense approach in setting forth the basic principles for bringing the eternal hope of Jesus Christ to those in need—be it in the church or in the marketplace. Business leaders are often wired as take charge, type A personalities, desiring to be in control. Dr. Wiersbe instructs us on how we can relax and rely on the Holy Spirit to help us in building his kingdom—while giving God the glory.
