Is Everyone Called To Be A Minister

Updated on January 21, 2015

Is Everyone Called

I will ask this question: Is everyone called to be a minister? I know some people would say yes and some will say no, but According to the bible everyone is not called to be a minister and what I mean by that is having your own church and congregation. But we are all called to witness, we may not all have the same calling, but we are all called, there are different callings but one body in Christ all working together. That is fantastic news! what a great privilege it is to serve God. His plan for all humanity was to accept God as lord and saviour, and it was the plan for everyone to walk as children of the almighty, so we didn't know we were created to follow God, but God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son. that we can live in him. As we are walking in our calling, whether we are teachers, preachers, evangelist, youth pastors, ministers of music, we all have our place and our calling in him.

Were Given Different Gifts In The Church

God gives us all different gifts differing one from another but, all gifts working together to make the church run smoothly, as he gives gifts to one ministers, teachers to another and, evangelist, deacons, and workers in the church, all ministering to feed his flock, for we are all members of one body who is working in the church so that it runs as God purposes it in the church; because not one man can do it all. We all members in church working to help meet the needs of the congregation, and pastors won’t get weary doing it all.

Rightly divide the word of truth


Practicing What You Preach

He must practice what he preaching, because if he knows to walk in love and he does not walk in love he's not practicing his love walk so doing one thing and teaching another God is not pleased with that for he must show by example that which is right according to the Bible. Sometimes we think men of God are perfect and we put them higher than we should but ministers are not perfect but are called to walk in the ways of God. And it’s not an easy calling for it takes commitment, dedication, patience, love, longsuffering, peace, and being faithful to what God has given him but God quickens us through his Holy spirit, teaching him what he needs him to preach.

The Rocks Will Cry Out

Listening to your Call

We are living in society today where every man is looking for something, we look around and were thinking and wondering and pondering what if: this man of God is getting everything he wants and we think that would be cool to have what he's got, or he looks like he is prospering and seem to have everything you want. Well it may look that way to you looking on the outside, but looking on the inside is not the same, the problem with that is that what I'm called to do may not be what your called to do, or what your called do is not necessarily right for me to do. God does not favor one person over another. Prayerfully ask the question to God, because he hears you and he wants to answer you.

      Without every functioning in the position in which they are called to function, it is like a body that is missing a limb. We are all called priests in scripture, showing that we are called to minister which is not the same as being a minister. Thank you for sharing.
