Five ways to serve G-d at work - Part One
If you want to learn how to be a minister then read this to learn more ... here are some thoughts from the end of Exodus, which we have just finished reading in the Torah portion cycle. All the work of the Tabernacle, the Tent of Meeting, was finished.
"B"nei-Yisrael did everything according to what Adonai had commanded Moses - they did it just so ... When Moses saw the entire work, and that they had done it just as Adonai had commanded, Moses blessed them." (Exodus 39:32 and 43)
This week's reading reminds us of what it is like when the body works together as it should. Although, there were some who specialized, like Bezalel, the Torah indicates that all Israel came together in wisdom (chapter 36) and gave and served in abundance. This should remind us of how we are called to serve, not only in our community, but in our daily sphere of influence. Each of us is called to be a minister acting in His service. Over the last few weeks, we have been reminded of just that fact. In reality, we are called to glorify God where we are, by serving him in whatever capacity we can.
The scriptures equate this service of the sanctuary with one who is wise. As disciples of Yeshua, we demonstrate the wisdom He has given us when we serve Him. Let this be a reminder that if you are serving Him, you are demonstrating wisdom. The world does not understand this wisdom. However, when the world sees it shown through you, you are testifying to who Yeshua is and what He has done for you.
Therefore, may we all be blessed and encouraged to continue to think of ourselves as minsters and act as ministers before Him. He will be glorified and you will be discipling others to do the same; you will be impacting the world for the Kingdom!
