Many people believe that all God wants us to do is go to church, bible study, prayer meetings, or seminars. Yes, we need to do these things, but we need to do more than simply go to church every Sunday and get fat off of the word and do nothing with it. The worst thing you can do is stand before God in that day with the seed of His word that you have done nothing with it. To whom much is given much is required. God created Adam in His own image and likeness, then gave him authority and dominion over all the work of his hand. He also gave him a commandment and placed him in the Garden of Eden. He told him not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Then He gave him the job of tending and keeping the Garden of Eden. But Adam did not walk worthy of this vocation because he did eat from the tree and was kicked out of the Garden.
The scriptures tells us that once we are born again, God gives us authority and dominion over all the works of His hand. He also gives us His commandments and a job or a vocation.The job He has given us to do is the work of the ministry. He wants us to walk worthy of this job and do it.
