Eph 4:11-12

And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;

12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ [KJV]

One of the things Akindele had learnt was that every child of God was to do the work of the ministry. But he just didn’t see himself as a preacher.

As he grew in the knowledge of God’s will, he learnt that God did not want him to be a church pastor. He learnt this after trying and failing to fit into that mold for six months.

He hadn’t found a job after his diploma; this was a serious prayer point. He was praying about this one day when he started asking himself: ‘what can I do very well that can be a job’. He remembered he had always been very good at barbing, thus, he decided to put together resources to begin a barbers shop.

Apostles; Prophets; Evangelists; Pastors and teachers have a job to equip God’s people for the work of the ministry. All God’s people are  to be involved in the work of the ministry even though not all of them will be involved in the offices mentioned. Ministry is in everywhere you find yourself. You do ministry in your job by representing Christ there and ministering to people the kingdom of God. This means you are an agent of righteousness, peace and joy wherever you are.

We shall see in subsequent editions of this topic that for Akindele, his ministry platform became his barbers shop.

Go into today trusting God to empower you fulfill his purpose in everywhere he has planted you.

Prayer: heavenly Father, please help me walk in my calling and fulfill your purpose for my life. In Jesus name. Amen. Not yet saved? Tap: http://bit.ly/1iTOmol
