How do you define a ministry? Is it about supporting every church activity and gathering? Or joining the music team? Or is it about being active in church evangelism programs? etc...
As I analyze the term "Ministry", it seems that there will be 2 types:
1.) General Ministry - this is the type of ministry where most people get joined with. Just like what the term implies, this is intended for the general public who is interested. For example, music team, ushering team, pastor support team, evangelism team and many more.
2.) Personal Ministry - this is not about any other people, its all about you. We all have our own calling, own destiny to live in, own skill to use and develop, and own life to dedicate for God.
God has a very unique plan for all of us. Hard to imagine and think of but easy to know especially if we will truly seek God.
According to Romans 12:3-8, "(Rom 12:3) "For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.(4)For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function,(5)so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.(6)Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them: if prophecy, let us prophesy in proportion to our faith;(7)or ministry, let us use it in our ministering; he who teaches, in teaching;(8)he who exhorts, in exhortation; he who gives, with liberality; he who leads, with diligence; he who shows mercy, with cheerfulness."
It clearly states that we all have our own spiritual gifts to nurture and use everyday. We may have different capabilities but what matters most is that we all use it to fulfill God's plan in our lives.
Daily Devotion Conclusion:
God will judge us not based from all those things we did but on those things we obeyed. If you still don't know yet your spiritual gift, try seeking God because it will be the only solution.
You may start by sharing His marvelous Word. Believe me, we are all called to share the Gospel. It is a fact that you should consider.
