Christian Ministry,

If you belong to Jesus Christ in any way at all, you become His minister. It is not a matter of clergy and laity. It is a matter of all of us being in the ministry of Jesus Christ. Think about Jesus Himself for a moment! He said that He had come “not to be served but to serve” (Mk.l0:45). And we understand Him as “The Man For Others” in this sense. What we don’t seem to understand is that when People came to Him to be His disciples, Jesus immediately began to shape them to be His ministers. They would come to follow Him for any number of reasons. He would feed them. He would heal them, spiritually and physically. But almost immediately, He would send them out: two-by-two; first the twelve; then the seventy; then others. Anyone who came to be a part of what He was doing had to understand that he or she had to be a full time minister.
