Why should I join a ministry?
When God was sending Moses to go and deliver the children of Israel from the wicked hands of the task masters in the land of Egypt, He specifically instructed what would follow later in Exodus 3:12, “And he said, Certainly I will be with thee; and this shall be a token unto thee, that I have sent thee: When thou hast brought forth the people out of Egypt, ye shall serve God upon this mountain”. Also Pharoah proved stubborn and heady, even in spite of the 1st plague that turned the water in the land to blood. Moses became confused and hopeless of the certainty of the deliverance, but God affirmed His word and commanded Him in Exodus 8:1, “And the Lord spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, thus saith the Lord, let my people go, that they may serve me”.
God does not save us for fun neither does He save us to be idle. As we are His representative on this earth, He wants us to continue from where He stopped. And truly speaking, there is so much ground to cover in the work of the kingdom. This si why every believe is expected to be fully engaged as He said in Luke 19:13 “Occupy till I come”. We also believe that every man saved has something to offer. THis is to say that there are potentials in every individual which needs not be buried but utilized to maximum. Therefore, the church has various ministries and groups where those who are already saved can be fully utilized and be fulfilled.
