Personal Ministry and Evangelism: Part 2


What exactly is ministry? It’s not just preaching and public speaking, Ministry comes in various forms and is channeled through our various gifts. You might be a musician or singer who can use those gifts to minister to others or you could use your gifts for building things or crafting things to help spread the good news. While we all have different gifts, the fact of the matter is we are all called to use those gifts in ways that serve God and his purpose…


We are Created for Ministry: “For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” Ephesians 2:10


We are Saved for Ministry: “ For this reason I remind you to fan into flame the gift of God, which is in you through the laying on of my hands. For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God. He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time” 2 Timothy 1:6-9


We are Called into Ministry: “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” 1 Peter 2:9-10


We are Gifted for Ministry: “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” 1 Peter 4:10


We are Authorized for Ministry: “Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20


We are Prepared to Minister: “So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-13


We will be Rewarded for our Ministry: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward.” Colossians 3:23-24


It’s time for you to stop being a Passive Christian and become an Active and awesome force of Christian Ministry, using whatever gift God has given you, and by demonstrating it daily with your Love, Compassion, and forgiveness just as God shows us these same mercies daily. Become the change that you want to see in this world.

“ And he said unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Matthew 4:19
