Here is our last question for Alison about life and ministry.
Why do you think this series "labour of love" speaks particularly to minister's wives?
It's so easy to get caught up in the good work of serving, teaching, attending and running groups, meeting up with people, serving our families, getting the gospel out and getting it right, but leave out the love - for God, for our church family and the unsaved.
Keeping truth and love tightly knit together is so hard for us humans. And it's especially hard, I think, for those of us who have a sense of the urgency of the times, and a deep concern for the unsaved. Jesus Christ embodies both God's perfect love and perfect truth. It's by abiding in him, his Word and his love for us, that we ensure our labour is a labour of love, pleasing to God.
