God has given men different offices to operate; "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;"
The issue now is why are many rushing to open ministries and churches because of the offices they operate in and the miracles, signs and wonders they perform even without consulting God?
Take note, that you can do miracles doesn't mean you're meant to open a ministry. You operate in the office of a pastor is not also an excuse. Before opening a church whatsoever the size it might be, seek God's will.
As a pastor, God's will might be for you to join one of the thousands of already established churches, if then you open your own church, you open yourself to attacks. Be warned.
Paul who was one of the greatest apostles if not the greatest planted many churches but headed none because it was not his office. If he had sat down in one place to head one of the churches, his recent fame wouldn't be same. Take note we all have a role to play in God kingdom, seek to know it and then perform it regardless how unpopular and disregarded by men it is. Heaven make no mistakes.
For as we have many members in one body, and all members have not the same office:
Nonetheless, that you don't stand on a pulpit before people or that you are no evangelist doesn't give you an excuse from the good commission. Preach Christ wherever you're through every aspects of you (words and actions). Remain blessed.
