1 Tim 4:14

Neglect not the gift that is in thee, which was given thee by prophecy, with the laying on of the hands of the presbytery.

KJV

This aspect of the teachings on the laying on of hands reveals that God has called all His children into specific assignments within His kingdom. There is no one in the kingdom of God without a responsibility therein.

Now there are some that have been particularly called to do ministry in the house of God (just like others have been called into the business world, administrations, helps, etc.); these people are expected to lead the body of Christ in certain areas; they stand as visible leaders in the body of Christ usually ministering the word and power of God to the people. The doctrine of the laying on of hands reveals that such people should be approved and authorized by the presbytery (the part of church reserved for the officiating minsters) and this approval is sealed by the laying on of hands. We normally call this approval an ordination.

Even though you may have a calling of God upon your life, if that calling is to minister the word to the body of Christ, or stand in leadership in the church of Christ( e.g. as an evangelist, pastor, teacher, prophet, Apostle), it is expedient for you to be officially ordained by the presbytery of an assembly of God’s people because it is the order of God’s house (see Leviticus 21:10, Acts 14:23) and it unleashes extra heavenly endorsements; whatsoever the church binds on earth is bound in heaven; whatsoever the church looses on earth is loosed in heaven(see Matt 18:18).

Go into today determined to walk in your God ordained destiny.

Prayer: Dear heavenly father. I thank you for your word. I pray you help me identify and walk in your purpose for my life each and every day, In Jesus name I pray. Amen
