March 18 & 19, 2017/God’s Travelers

Not everyone who is a Pastor ministers.

Not every Minister is a Pastor.

While the term ‘Pastor’ is definted as one who is in charge of a church or congregation, the term ‘Minister’ can also be defined as one who attends to the needs of someone.

We may not be ordained Pastors but each of us has the ability to be a ‘Minister’ to others.

You may have met such people. After all, Hebrews 13:2 says: Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

As Christians we have a duty to offer hospitality to others. 3 John 1:5-8-Beloved, thou doest faithfully whatsoever thou doest to the brethern, and to strangers; Which have borne witness of thy charity before the church: whom if thou bring forward on their journey after a godly sort, thou shalt do well: Because that for his name’s sake they went forth, taking nothing of the Gentiles. We therfore ought to receive such, that we might be fellow-helpers to the truth.

Offer the gift of yourself to those in and out of the church in whatever why you can. When you do so, you honor Christ and those ‘Pastors’, ‘Ministers’ and Missionaries of old who went forth to proclaim God’s word with little earthly thought or possessions.

In this way, we minister in love to each other.
