If you are a saved person in the Body of Christ grace doctrine teaches you have been called into ministry. There are no exceptions.
Perhaps you think being called to ministry means becoming a pastor, priest, or teacher standing in front of the church. Don’t worry, this is not the first time you’ve been wrong.
Since you are not that, you have assigned yourself the role of “layman”, pew-sitter, and spectator, a recipient of spiritual welfare, exempt from doing any ministry work.
Your thinking needs to change.
There are no priests and laymen in the Body (terms used by religion). There are no spectators on the field of play. We are all ministers of the Lord in active duty.
Your ordination papers are found in Eph 2:10, Eph 4:12, and 2 Tim 3:16-17. They come from your ministerial Head, the Lord Jesus Christ, and are signed by the Spirit in you.
A failure to recognize your ministry responsibility is a rejection of your Head, and each of us will give an account to the Lord for our service (Rom 14:12).
It’s time you found something to do.
Don’t know where to do ministry work? Here are four places you can minister:
