God hasn’t called everyone to vocational ministry, but He has called every one of us to be full-time ministers. In this message, Pastor Robert reveals how you can live your day-to-day life, fully equipped for the work of the ministry.
Ephesians 4:11-16 says that Jesus gave certain people to the Body of Christ to serve as apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers. Their purpose is to “equip the saints for the work of the ministry.” All believers are “saints,” and all “saints” are called to actively minister to others no matter what their vocation.
We must make ourselves available to be equipped. God is not necessarily looking for ability, but for availability. The main purpose of being equipped is to minister to others with the heart of a servant. According to Ephesians 4:16, this is what causes the Body of Christ to grow in love.
