1. Anointing makes the difference in the ministry. Without the anointing you will be among the rest and not among the best.
2. Where there is anointing, there can be no annoyance. Anointing subdues all the works of the flesh and shuts-up the mouths of the opponents against you and your ministry.
3. Anointing can be lost through sin, pride, carelessness and negligence. Samson is a good example of this. Without carefulness, watchfulness and self-denial, it quickly leaks away.
4. Anointing must be kept fresh always. Leave the oil in a place for a period of time and it dries up. You must do everything to preserve the freshness of the anointing. There is always the need for constant check up and renewal.
