Rev. Edward Sarkodie of the Watered Garden Church, has disclosed that it is important for all Christians to be in ministry.
He simply defined the word ministry as service or work to God.
“Ministry just has to do with the work of God or the service of God so anything done to advance God’s agenda on earth is called ministry” he explained.
He stated that it is also a specific assignment that Jesus has begun and has handed over to us as his children to continue on his behalf.
Answering whether or not preaching the word of God can be referred to as being in ministry, he told Paul Anomah Kordieh in an interview on e.TV Ghana’s Christian Connect he said, “That should be the ultimate goal because if you read Ephesians 4 it talks about all the ministries which say they are to equip the saints so they do the work of the ministry”.
He furthered that in the book of 2 Corinthians 5, the scripture talks about the ministry of reconciliation where God expects us to bring the world to him through his word.
“He calls it the ministry of reconciliation which means, reconciling the world to Christ so that becomes the work of the ministry,” he said.
Rev Edward disclosed that every believer irrespective of what service they are into or involved in has to be in the primary or general ministry.
