Once someone has grown through the preaching and teaching of God's word, the biblical objective is to involve that person in ministry.
- 1 Peter 4:10 says, “As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” When a person accepts Christ as Savior, he or she receives spiritual gifts through the divine enabling through the Holy Spirit and God expects them to use these gifts to serve the Lord Jesus Christ in the local church.
- 1 Corinthians 12, Paul says that every member has a place in the body. Just as there are no useless parts in a physical body, there are no members whose sole purpose is to sit and not serve. Every member should be a minister; every saint should be a servant.
