Thought on Ministry and Equipping

Think about Jesus…did he do all the ministry? At first, but he was doing the equipping.  Then he sent the disciples out in two’s. Ultimately, Jesus’ ministry was equipping the disciples and directly serving those outside of the disciples. How many miracles did he do on behalf of or directly for the disciples? No healings…except for Peter’s mom. He did calm the sea for them too. So he did care for them “pastorally.” So his ministry wasn’t to them but for them.

The Church is the Body of Christ. Therefore the Church doesn’t exist to serve the Christian but for the Christian to serve. The Church exists to serve the Christian in their service!
