Unpacking Our Community Ministries

The term Saints mostly refer to Christians and “Saints Ministry” referring to those involved in Church work, equipping, training and ministering inside and outside the church building.

Book of Ephesians unveils the mystery of Jesus’ fullness on earth, while also uniting, training and equipping followers called the body of Christ. Actually, all true believers of every Christian group need spiritual power especially today. Thus, the unpacking of the Saints Ministry ties into why Jesus’ coming, the cross and raised from death. As Christians, we do not buy or take a test to get spiritual gifts. The purpose of the Bible is to unveil the mystery of Church while forming a united body of Christ covering the world. So, why make a big deal about this? Because the subject is extremely vital to us today as part of the Church Age. When Churches unite, they open spiritual doors called: “Church Age”, and also the subject of spiritual armor, training and ministering becomes an important topics. How will Jesus’ last day Saints, you and me, crush Satan’s plan as a mature Holy Spirit filled army? Notice how important spiritual gifts, training, equipping and leadership fall into place the working body of Christ Jesus talks about.

Okay, let’s move over to winners, those who take the prize! Sadly, many churches worldwide need to brighten their lights. Preparing does not mean sitting and asking for victory, it requires effort, training, equipping and yes, winning! God is calling believers to stand in faith preparing for the greatest times in history, not the worst. This Post should be encouraging, not discouraging, but it might require a spiritual wake up call for some.

Yes, we do live in a world of adversity and can’t afford to be weak spiritually because Jesus’ Church, talking about all of us, the answer God placed in His plan before foundation of world. Remember, God created man/woman to be His power and authority over all others things created. Jesus is now setting up His church to take over where Adam left off. No, church is not just a building to gather in; it’s God’s body in action also. The world-wide body of Christ needs good wake up call to run with leadership, train and equip as Jesus’ army of Saints working their own ministry producing Godly offspring, who also train to produce more Godly offspring.

God’s plan for earth was to have a place to reside, a place where He could work through, not work for. The body of Christ, that’s Christians, is where God’s Spirit resides and He is the Head. Yes, we are individuals, but also part of God’s local body in our communities. This unity is the spiritual power of todays’ church working in concert with each other and Jesus. My book, “What God Wants to do For You Now”, and my book “God’s Plan is Not an Obstacle Course” both lay a foundation for God’s Love Journey. All my books can be seen on Amazon.com/books, with or without buying. Take a look and see.
