Every believer has been called into God's service whether we know it or not. Once you have given your life to the Lord Jesus Christ ( born again), you are automatically adopted into the family of God, hence the work of the building of the kingdom of God here on earth begins in your life. Our main text today tells us that He will equip us (believers) with all that we need for doing His will. God cannot call us to do something without providing the materials or resources we will need to do the job. The Lord also reveals to us in Phil 2:13 that He is working in each of us to give us the desire and power to do what pleases Him. Beloved, what pleases God is our service to Him, our commitment to the propagation of His kingdom. Winning souls (evangelism) pleases Him, helping those in need through giving of our resources and time pleases Him, praying (interceding) for the sick, needy pleases the Lord, encouraging one another in the Lord, teaching the word of God to others and much more all are service unto the Lord that pleases our God. God knows that some or all of these things, we cannot do without His help because we as human beings have limitations and that is why the word of God states in 2 Peter 1:3 " By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. " and also Apostle Paul states in Phil 4:19 that the God who takes care of him shall supply all the needs of the brethren according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus. Paul was confident that God will provide all that the brethren needed to do the work of God as He had always done for him . In the world we live in, let us be sincere, everything we do including the work of God requires financial resources and without money, it is really difficult to get things done. But the Lord has assured us that He will make a way where there appears to be no way Isaiah 43:16. As long as it is God who sent you, He will also provide the means to get the assignment done.
Another important resource the Lord has given His people to equip them for service are the gifts of the Spirit as we see in 1 Corinthians 12:1-11. These gifts along with the talents or skills He has blessed us with contribute tremendously to the success of God's work here on earth. Even within the body of Christ, there are certain groups of believers who have been given special responsibility by the Lord to equip the children of God for service (building up the church). These people are the apostles, the prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. and are held to a higher standard than the rest of the body as a result of the nature of their responsibilities. "And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: "Ephesians 4:11-12.
Beloved, the Lord will always provide all that we need to do the work He has assigned to each of us. As He did it for Moses , when He provided Aaron to be Moses' mouth piece to lead the children of God out of Israel, and was with him every step of the way and many others throughout history, so He will do for us. The Lord God who is more than able will surely equip us for every good work and at the end of our service to Him here on earth, He alone shall take the glory and He shall say unto us "Well done good and faithful servant" See Matthew 25:21
