  • What is Ministry of Help? Who needs help? What is the need? Where is the help coming from?
    Not until we get it right we will continue to miss the point.
    My heart and sense of reasoning was iluminated during the online discussion with pastor Biola Orimoloye, a friend and popular online teacher of the word, I decided to pen my perspective on this subject.
    The ministry of help begun from God who helped to meet the need of the world and that help from God to meet the needs of the world began from giving. For God so love the world that he gave his only begotten son. The world is in need and the only help God could render is by parting with only thing he has. Love is an expression of giving, giving only thing you have. In other to continue to meet the need of the world Jesus gave the gift to men for two reasons. 1 to make profit. 2. To perfect the saints.

    1For12: 7 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal.

    easy English translation said it this way. In each one of us, God shows in certain ways that his Spirit is present in us. He gives certain gifts to each of us so that we can help each other

    Everyone that is giving these gifts of the spirit is to help people.

    Perfecting the saints.
    Ephesian4:11-12
    Easy English.

    11 It was Christ who gave some of his people the gift to be special workers and leaders on his behalf. He gave to some people the gift to speak messages from him. He gave to some people the gift to bring other people to himself. He gave to some people the gift to be pastors (leaders who help Christ’s people to follow him) and teachers.

    FOR WHAT PURPOSE?
    12 He gave all these gifts to prepare God’s people, so that they could work together as his servants. So then, as a result, Christ’s body would grow and it would become stronger.

    Can you see now that the ministry of Help begin from God by giving Jesus to the world. For the help to continue Jesus gave these five fold ministry to build the Church. For this ministry to function, each also need ministry of giving.

    Paul explained on this ministry of help further in the book of Roman 12:6-8

    6 We have different gifts based on the grace that was given to us. So if your gift is prophecy, use your gift in proportion to your faith.

    7 If your gift is serving, devote yourself to serving others. If it is teaching, devote yourself to teaching others.

    8 If it is encouraging, devote yourself to encouraging others. If it is sharing, share generously. If it is leading, lead enthusiastically. If it is helping, help cheerfully.

    I know some people, they are kingdom financial. They can give to their detriment.
    Reverse is the case today. Most of these people who are not even called would want to be addressed as a prophet and they cannot see anything. They want to be called Apostle without the mandate of Apostle, they want to be called Bishop without humility to serve. They have used all these title to enslaved people.

    Ministry of help is about giving. It could be giving of spiritual gift or material gift.

    There are some people , they are gifted in ministry of help. They have bought cars to men of God, built houses for men of God. The ministry become flourished because of ministry of help. Not until we see our fellow human being as a means of rendering help to God we will not be fulfilling the help ministry according to God.
    Thank you for reading.
