I had the privilege last week of celebrating the ordination of my daughter-in-law. It was a joyous occasion as her home church congregation and fellow clergy honored and confirmed her call to the ministry. During the ceremony, my daughter-in-law accepted the awesome responsibility of full-time service to God. She is a professional member of the clergy, but the New Testament tells us that all believers are meant to be ministers.
He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant… 2 Corinthians 3:6
As believers, we are each charged with the same duty. How is your life building up the body of believers? Are you being true to your calling?
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.1 Peter 2:9
Will you accept the charge?
