Comment on 7: Servant Leadership – Discussion Starters by Mphatso [Full Name Please]

David,

Whether singles or not “we” have all been called to serve. If we say singles cant serve as elders or deacons, what are we saying to our young ones who have the Holy Spirit to do the work and have passion about it…?
Again there are others who dont want to get married.. Are we saying they can’t serve as elders or deacons..?

We have the young Timothy in the bible – he was just a youth…
We have Paul he chose not to be married… but they all served as elders etc etc…

1 Timothy 4:12….

“let no one despise your youth….”

14 Do not neglect the gift that is in you, which was given you through the prophecy spoken over you at the laying on of the hands of the elders……..

Matthew 28:19-20

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

This great calling isnt for singles or married couples ONLY, its for EVERYONE..

God bless us all

Amen!(0)
