Offices vs Functions, Yah’s Way


Holding an Office?. In the church?cropped-walk-set-apart-logo

My thoughts of an office setting bring about (today) horrid visions of computers, supervisors,discrimination, bad behavior of customers and long Work hours; so why would I want to associate this with my relationship with the Most High?

Life with Yahwah is not a 9 to 5 Work schedule; and neither is it Sunday only. It is a lifestyle of the Set Apart. Hence, this term ‘office’ found in Romans 12:4, (KJV) throws that thing way off kilter, and this is why people associate titles with their so called church experience.

What do you do at church?

Office of Bishop, Pastor, Secretary, Counselor, Minister, President of Ushers, Choir, Praise Team, Music Dept., Sunday School? More?.

Although needed, the question is are they gifting? Moreover, is everybody gifted (called) to these functions.

“Now different gifts, according to the favor which was (((given))) to us, let us use them accordingly”.

Prophecy, according to the proportion of belief.

Here I add, that if I think of an office I might not believe in the Work, but might just be there for a pay check nothing else.

Finally, the text says, “Let love be without hypocrisy, shrink from what is wicked cling to what is good. In brotherly love, tenderly loving towards one another, in appreciation giving preference to one another.”

Surely, this kind of love can’t be found in an office setting.

Be Set Apart, not a title.

(Romans 12, The Scriptures).
