CARRIERS OF THE WORD
The Lord gave the word;
Great was the company of those who proclaimed it:
THE DIVERSE COMPANY
God in His wisdom created us as unique people.
His gifts and callings are diverse and different for all of us.
The greatness of God is revealed in the diverseness of the company of the proclaimers.
WE CARRY HIS WORD
Too many people are sprouting their own version of life, and their own view of Christianity.
Proclaimers of the Gospel – must be clear.
The Gospel is the good news of salvation through Christ – available to all who believe.
WE DECLARE HIS WORD DIFFERENTLY
APOSTOLIC PEOPLE – declare His word as BOLDNESS for great things.
PROPHETIC PEOPLE – declare His word as the BURDEN of the Lord.
EVANGELISTIC PEOPLE – declare His word as the BEHOLD moment of miracles.
TEACHER PEOPLE – declare His word as the BEHAVIOUR of the believer.
PASTORAL PEOPLE – declare His word as the BINDING together with cords of love.
WE ALL CARRY THE WORD DIFFERENTLY
What is needed is respect among the believers for the way in which God uses people.
Jesus said – if they are not against us – they are for us.
ALL MEMBERS WORKING TOGETHER
When I go to conferences I love the diversity of speakers bringing the word.
Some inspire me.
Some bore me.
Some disagree with me.
Some challenge me.
Some entertain me.
But all working together to bring the word of the Lord.
Learn to respect all carriers of His word – even when it may not be – your cup of tea.
GREAT IS THE COMPANY
OF THOSE WHO PROCLAIM HIS WORD
