The Calling to Minister and connect is as old as humanity. Adam was create to connect God and creation. Walking with God, Adam ministered to His great, expansive heart. Then, walking in the garden of Eden, Adam ministered to the world God entrusted him with. As long as Adam ministered to God and creation, earth was a paradise in perfect relationship with God.
Of course Adam fell by disobeying God's instruction and Jesus was born to carry the calling. Jesus' life was spent in continuous connection with His Father and connecting with hurting people ministering to their diseases and heartaches. Ultimately, He shed His own blood to heal and seal the broken relationship between heaven and earth. Jesus is the living connection between the two.
The bible calls this ministry the priesthood, and it is the honor of every believer to connect with God, connect with people, and connect the two to each other. It doesn't require a master of divinity degree, and you've already been ordained by God Himself. You are called to steward the relationship between God and people. And so am I.
Prayer: Father, thank You for reminding me that I am both Your child and a priest. Stay close to me today and show me how I can minister to Your heart. Give me opportunities to connect with people and to minister Your love to them-even in the mundane routines of life. As I do these two things, I pray that through Your Son, Jesus, You would connect every one of those people to Yourself. Now guide me to carry Your love and Your presence into my world. In Jesus' name, Amen.
