QUESTION: "Serving as a minister of some sort (e.g. preacher, choir leader, usher, hospitality) at you're local church service does not mean you are playing your role in the body of Christ? Do you agree or disagree?"


Pastor's response...

ANSWER: "Our role in the body of Christ is very different from our roles in a local assembly. Most believers have a function in a local assembly, but are NOT really functioning in the body of Christ (the spiritual community of the saints and her divine purpose) Some believers also have a role in the body of Christ but do not function properly in a local assembly In order to be able to function properly in the two (which is expected) 1. You need to mature in your sense of identity (through, discipleship and mentoring) 2. Your purpose is locked in your identity, you need to know it and understand fully the whats, whys, hows, whens, with whoms, for how longs of the execution of your purpose 3. You need to give yourself wholly to it, and dedicate yourself to it as your primary assignment in life for which you will be rewarded by Christ and as someone who will give account 4. Just like you do not stumble into a career like engineering, you CANNOT stumble into fulfilling your call! as with any worthy profession You need to learn and practice the discipline. You need the experience and personal maturity to represent the profession You need to fully understand and be able to comply to the exacting standards demanded of the industry/ discipline. you need to apply these same principles to serving in the body of Christ"
