You are called to the duty of minister
Exodus 19:5,6 - Now therefore, if ye will obey my voice indeed, and keep my covenant, then ye shall be a peculiar treasure unto me above all people: for all the earth is mine: And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests, and an holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel.
Most Christians who believe in the Lord and read His Word do not want to follow what they read.
The two things as people of God we need to do, is be a holy people. Which means, although we live in this world we should be separated from the teachings and ways of this world which go contrary to God's Word.
The other thing which most think is only for a select few is be ministers or priest unto the Lord, doing His work.
Everybody mostly think that it is this brother's or that sister's work to spread the Gospel of the grace of Lord Jesus Christ, but I am doing my part of believing.
Dear brothers and sisters in the Lord, in the Lord's Kingdom there is no concept of audience. For some time you may be excused when you are lambs learning, but soon or later be ready to be part of the Body of Christ; to lead others and become disciples of Jesus. Knowledge of the Word of God did not help King Solomon from falling. It is only when we become disciples, following Jesus Christ, being operational under His Spirit by keeping His Word that we will know the real truth and be set free from our old man.
So in whatever small way you can, start testifying the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ unto others and bring them to know the Lord.

1 Kings 11:31-43
31 And he said to Jeroboam, Take thee ten pieces: for thus saith the LORD, the God of Israel, Behold, I will rend the kingdom out of the hand of Solomon, and will give ten tribes to thee:
32 (But he shall have one tribe for my servant David's sake, and for Jerusalem's sake, the city which I have chosen out of all the tribes of Israel:)
33 Because that they have forsaken me, and have worshipped Ashtoreth the goddess of the Zidonians, Chemosh the god of the Moabites, and Milcom the god of the children of Ammon, and have not walked in my ways, to do that which is right in mine eyes, and to keep my statutes and my judgments, as did David his father.
34 Howbeit I will not take the whole kingdom out of his hand: but I will make him prince all the days of his life for David my servant's sake, whom I chose, because he kept my commandments and my statutes:
35 But I will take the kingdom out of his son's hand, and will give it unto thee, even ten tribes.
36 And unto his son will I give one tribe, that David my servant may have a light alway before me in Jerusalem, the city which I have chosen me to put my name there.
37 And I will take thee, and thou shalt reign according to all that thy soul desireth, and shalt be king over Israel.
38 And it shall be, if thou wilt hearken unto all that I command thee, and wilt walk in my ways, and do that is right in my sight, to keep my statutes and my commandments, as David my servant did; that I will be with thee, and build thee a sure house, as I built for David, and will give Israel unto thee.
39 And I will for this afflict the seed of David, but not for ever.
40 Solomon sought therefore to kill Jeroboam. And Jeroboam arose, and fled into Egypt, unto Shishak king of Egypt, and was in Egypt until the death of Solomon.
41 And the rest of the acts of Solomon, and all that he did, and his wisdom, are they not written in the book of the acts of Solomon?
42 And the time that Solomon reigned in Jerusalem over all Israel was forty years.
43 And Solomon slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David his father: and Rehoboam his son reigned in his stead.
31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
|The Word of God was given free to us, therefore we should also share it freely with others.
