"‘No one has hired us,’ they answered him. “He said to them, ‘Work in my vineyard.’
|No one in the family of God is out of work, even if it appears otherwise.
What was designed by God as a family of believers living to support one another has today turned into an large down-sizing corporation. Leadership specializes in specific certain fields of ministry and serve the body, most of whom do not see the need to minister to anyone else. There's certainly nothing wrong with a trained person leading God's people, but when doing so, the congregation is negated or discouraged from actively working in ministry, it's contrary to God's design. We need to remind ourselves that even though earning statements come from as earthly entity, God is still our employer. Don't you think it's high time for God's people to show up for work and not act like He laid us off when we hired a pastor?
