We are all called

"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15

We all may not be preachers, but we do have a ministry. Being in the ministry does not just include the five-fold ministry. The word ministry means or shareth means service which comes from the word sharath. This means to contribute, to do, to serve, or to wait on in the Hebrew.

The Greek word for ministry is diakonia, it means to aid, teacher, to give relief, to give service, to be as a servant.

A ministry is an act of service, just because you may not have the title apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor or teacher does not mean that you can not have a ministry. If you believe then you have been called into the ministry. One does not need to stand behind a pulpit to be a minister. The world is full of hurting people that need that love of Jesus. You may have a ministry in giving of your time, of yourself to help others. You may have the ministry of listening. You may have the gift to serve others, or even bearing someone burdens in prayer. There are some many different ministries, all one has to do is let that light shine through you.

Whether or not your a pastor or a believer, God is still the same. When we let Him live through us we are fulfilling that calling of minister.

There are many different services that we can minister to believers and unbelievers alike that is....Jesus! There is one Lord. The same God that called Jesus has called each of us.

The same Jesus lives in us. To be a effective minister or have an effective ministry we must let Him minister in and through us.

"For me to live is Christ:" Philippians 1:21

Our life in Christ is that to ministry. As long as you believe you have a ministry.
