Kingdom Gifts – the Five Fold Ministry!

17 08 2013

5 tree finishedWe just finished the CJM Wilderness Retreat.

Throughout the retreat we looked at the 5 fold ministry gifts established by Jesus in Ephesians 4.

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.

Eph 4:11-13

We didn’t look at these “office gifts” as they have been traditionally studied and implemented, rather we looked at how each of us have an area of our lives where God intends some and sometimes all of these gifting to function.

Each of us have been called to equip others for the works of service. If you are a parent, you are called to be a pastor, a teacher sometimes a prophet, an evangelist and even an apostle. We never think about how everyone is called by Jesus to step out in some unique area that only they were created to reach.

Stepping out in the gifts of God is not about us, it is all about HIM! His power, His authority, and His will to be done on earth as it is in heaven.
