This verse is found in Luke 10:2 – hence, the 10-2 Ministry. We here at Calvary Chapel Oro Valley believe in the biblical paradigm that the church leadership doesn’t do the work of the ministry, the congregant members do. The leadership is to facilitate the ministry – they are to pray and teach.
Acts 6:2 So the twelve called a meeting of all the believers. “We apostles spend our time preaching and teaching the Word of God, not administering the food program,” they said.
Then it goes on in Acts 6:4 “then we can spend our time in prayer and preaching and teaching the Word.
Ephesians 4:11-12 “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for edifying the body of Christ.”
So what is your ministry to be?
1 Peter 4:10 states “God has given gifts to each of you from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Manage them well so that God’s generosity can flow through you.”
Matthew 20:28 “Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”
We are to be servants – we are to serve the body of Christ. We all have skills in something, we all have a passion for something. What are yours? How can you use them to serve the body?
If you are constantly taking in and you are never giving out you will become like the Dead Sea – dead!
