Be A Minister

2 CORINTHIANS 3:5-6 NIV 5 Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. 6 He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant -- not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

A minister's job is turning people to God.

No one has to appoint you, ordain you, or give you credentials to make you a minister.

A minister is one who serves -- serves God, and people, by turning people to God so they can receive help.

Being a minister does not require you to have a title such as pastor, bishop, or priest.

While it is true that God does call some to special places of ministry, it is a mistake to think that we all cannot, or should not, minister.

A minister is a middle-man like a real estate agent. A person can find out about God on their own with a Bible, just like someone can buy a house directly, but it is easier and faster to have a more experienced person who knows the territory help you.

Someone who helps another is a minister. You can do that.

SAY THIS: God made me able to minister -- to help someone.
