KEY SCRIPTURE:2 Corinth 3:6 KJV “Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life”.
Our key scripture reveals something very profound about us. It says we are ministers of the Spirit. To be a minister is to be a servant or a waiter. It takes supernatural beings to be servants of the spirit. The scripture says it is God who has made us able ministers. A waiter at the restaurant dispenses food. As ministers of the Spirit, we dispense the Spirit. We give out the Spirit. The essence of the Spirit is life. This means we give life. This places us in the very ministry of our Lord Jesus. John 20:21 KJV” Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you”.
One error that most Christians make is that we see ourselves as people who must be present at Sunday church services and attend other Christian functions and programs, and that is it. Unfortunately, we do not see ourselves as a people on a mission. We have been equipped by the Lord Himself, with divine life to give life to our would. The scripture says we have a more superior ministry to that of Moses. 2Corinth 3:7 KJV “But if the ministration of death, written and engraven in stones, was glorious, so that the children of Israel could not steadfastly behold the face of Moses for the glory of his countenance; which glory was to be done away:2Co 3:8 KJV “How shall not the ministration of the spirit be rather glorious?” Moses ministry is called the ministry of death. We have the ministry of life.
Moses committed himself to his commission, and made a mighty impact in the lives of the Jews in Egypt. We have the Ministry of life, a more glorious ministry. We have been sent to bring life to a dead world. Men are dead in their sins. Eph 2:1. Stop considering yourself as a Sunday bench warmer, but a man or woman endowed with supernatural life and abilities to minister life to men, who are bound by death.2 Corinth 3:3 states that we are letters of the Spirit read by all men. This means our lives are supposed to be messages of life and light to many in darkness.
GOD has made me an able minister of the Spirit. I minister life to a lost world. My ministry is a very glorious one, and so I commit myself totally to it.
2 Corinth 3:3 ISV “You are demonstrating that you are the Messiah’s letter, produced by our service, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.”
2 Corinth 3:9 ISV “For if the ministry of condemnation has glory, then the ministry of justification has an overwhelming glory.”
