God's Idea About Ministry

How To Discover & Fulfill Yours

 

Ministry has been defined, redefined and misdefined by many people across ages and dispensation. Many people have began their journeys of ministry and many people have finished their journeys of ministry. While many people have succeeded in the work of ministry; a good number of people are struggling day-by-day. They struggle daily, not because God is not faithful, but partly because they are ignorant of their God, and partly because they are ignorant of themselves.

Before we understand God's idea of ministry, we must first note that God is in heaven and like it is written; He does whatever pleases Him. Part of what pleases God is the state or well-being of the earth and its inhabitants. While God resides in the heavens, He rules over the affairs of men on the earth - and He does that through other men. The other men are not "special men" as it were; but they are men who have encountered their purpose of living and have embraced it completely.

God is so much interested in what happens on the earth daily; yet, He is God, He is not Man - For He had handed the dominion of the earth to man (Genesis 1:26). What God does now is to seek for men among men who would represent His will and purpose on the earth. Such men do not have to be popular, rich, tall or outspoken; they only need to know their God.

According to the book of Daniel 11:32, the Scripture says that the PEOPLE who know their God shall be strong, and they shall carry out great exploits. True strengths are not really hereditary or inherited; rather, they are sourced at the place of consistent encounter with the Lord - the Maker of heaven and earth. No wonder, everyone that forsakes all else and chooses to stay with Jesus Christ and fellowship daily with the Holy Spirit usually end up becoming extraordinary. In short, ministry is not for extraordinary minds, but for the transformed minds - minds that the Spirit of Christ has changed overtime in the place of fellowship or discipleship.

The earth was created by God at the beginning as the place of His praise, but as soon as darkness came in and overwhelmed the earth; the earth became void and formless. No wonder, at the intervention of God, God simply called for the light to come forth. Ministry is not about the megaphones, but about a shining light. Remember, when John the Baptist came, Jesus referred to him as a "burning and a shining light". The idea of God about ministry about light and lights that shines among men on the earth. What is the need of light in the light, and what is the role of light in the darkness? Light does nothing else in a dark environment other than brighten up the atmosphere. Ministry is simply a divine errand to the earth, which makes men shine among men for the glory of God.

Isaiah 60:1-3 spoke very prophetically, "Arise shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon
