Time for a change in the church

By November 1, 2018January 9th, 2019No Comments

The priesthood has changed, and it needs to change in the church as well. For thousands of years, the church has been pastors or ministers first. They were God’s chosen or at least that was the stance many have taken and the people have adopted that. I grew up in a time when the only people “called” where the preachers. The calling of God was upon them. And we would watch them do the ministry. But God’s church is not clergy (me) with a ministry to laity (you) supporting it. No, church is about all of us having a ministry and all of us supporting it. 

You are called, but not necessarily to church ministry. In fact, I say, don’t desire to be in church ministry unless you are called to be in church ministry. Being a minister is harder than it looks.

When you are called to something, when you are anointed to something, you can make things look easy, but that doesn’t mean they are easy. I’ve known lot of musicians that make playing music look so effortless. But it isn’t. Playing music is hard. It’s is a calling. 

We need you to be where God has called you to be, and most definitely not in the church unless you are to be there. If you are called to be a doctor, be a doctor. If you are a teacher, teach. If you are a banker, work at the bank. Stay in your lane, let God work through you in your area of profession, and watch God do amazing things in your area of “ministry”, ie your profession.
