Beset with Weakness


Church Family,

Praying for everyone’s protection during the upcoming storm. If anyone needs help, please let us know.

Much has been made lately in some circles about whether people are called to ministry or not. On one hand, every believer is called to ministry. Go and make disciples is a call to ministry. There are many other verses that support the calling of all believers. On the other hand, while there is a general calling to make disciples, God also specifically calls us to certain ministries.

A good thought to keep in mind is this, you are always trying to fulfill the general calling of God to Go and Make Disciples. Likewise, when God specifically calls you to certain ministry, you must use that ministry to Go and Make Disciples.

Hebrews 5:1-4 For every high priest chosen from among men is appointed to act on behalf of men in relation to God, to offer gifts and sacrifices for sins. 2He can deal gently with the ignorant and wayward, since he himself is beset with weakness.3Because of this he is obligated to offer sacrifice for his own sins just as he does for those of the people. 4And no one takes this honor for himself, but only when called by God, just as Aaron was.

Just as Christ did not give Himself the ministry of the High Priest, we can not give ourselves our own ministry. It is given to us by God. I also love the reminder that I am beset with weakness. No matter how great my calling, my strength will never come from me. I am beset with weakness, not strength. God is both the caller and provider of ministry. Where is God calling you?

Reminder:
