We are in a huge transition: from 5-fold ministry to a thousand-fold. Those called into “ministry” exceed the sand on the seashore and the stars in the sky. Why? Because we are in a reformation to bless nations.
In the new covenant priest and king are both in the same person. Jesus is our example… our high priest who is also the King of kings.
As believers we do trade our time, talents, treasure and our very lives for something much better… It’s not a sacrifice, it’s a bargain that we trade for in wisdom to “increase” our spiritual and natural portfolio.
