Jesus Places Us in Ministry, Where and When He Chooses!

Bible Verse Galatians 5:15-16

But if you bite and devour one another, beware lest you be consumed by one another I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.

Commentary:

Paul tells us, we are to walk with trust in God, following the guidance of the Holy Spirit, performing God's will for the church and not our desires. Paul then gives us the reason why? "For the flesh lusts against the Spirit." We have to remember that Paul is writing by the inspiration of God, and what Paul tells us in this portion of his letter is very important. Because we do what is right not by our own will power, but by the power of God through the Holy Spirit who indwells all believers. Thereby allowing God to use us for His service and to His glory. The concept Paul alludes to when he tells us, "walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh," is that it's God who uses us for His service and not people. In other words, it's Jesus who places each and every one of us in ministry to serve Him as He sees fit. Moreover, Jesus can and does move God's children from one spot to another as He has a need and not necessarily as we desire.

This may mean that we serve in one area for a short time, then move to another area, or Jesus may decide to keep us in one spot for many decades. In addition, we must trust that Jesus will always prepare us for the different ministries which He has called us to serve. The point is the decision belongs to our Lord and Savior and not to us. We go where called, and when called. Dear child of God this is a very important concept to truly understand in our minds as well as our hearts, because this also means we do not try to build our own "ministry castle," under our own power, using resources and money which does not belong to us. We are called to act responsibly with the tithes given to the church. We are to use those to further the Gospel of Christ, help those in need and reach those who are lost. God never meant those resources to stay in one place in order to build ourselves bigger, in order to seek our own recognition. Rather, they were meant to seek the lost, further the spread of the Gospel and help those in need around us.
