I am shown this in two parts. 1) what this means for me. 2) what this means for all of us.
I am a minister of God becuase this is the function God has given me. I am here to accept our Fathers Will, and in this unified purpose give the gifts my Father has given me to all the world. The key factor in this, is that the gifts are first intended for me to recieve, and then I give what I have recieved. In the giving, I receive even greater and the continuum of Gods Grace continues to expand. However if I do not give the time, willingness and focus to LISTEN within and accept my function and purpose in Gods plan, then I am doing it by myself and trying to make another "identity" for myself that is NOT the Truth as God created me. This will lead to suffering and intense conflict....
I am with and among ministers of God who are my equal brothers in Christ. I am not alone in this Identity of Minister of God. Every one has this One Voice within them, to listen to and learn from, that they too may accept their appointed task. It is up to me however, who I SEE in them. Do I see a minister of God? the Christ? equal in power with me as a Child of God? Or do I see an ego? name? special teacher? someone greater or less than me?
To be among ministers, means that there is no difference between any of us. Noone can claim to be a teacher or minister, and not include every one in this identity. If we include everyone in this identiy, we can then GIVE miracles, for miracles are "For believers, by believers" . If I instead, assume that my part is differnt then others and take on a special role, then the mind is set on difference between us. (often unconsciously hidden by the desire to "help") This difference IS the block to the miracle for miracles happen and spring from equality. So either we are ALL miracle workers, or noone is. And how we see our brother, we will see our Self. To remember my brother is a minister of God WITH me, helps me to keep the vision of our shared identity and purpose in the foreground of our mind; so that we ensure to remain truly helpful. As we help, we will be helped.
We must be vigilant NOT to listen to the voice that speaks first in our heads. For that voice is the voice of the ego and ego always traps us in fear. As we recognize our patterns, and how ego talks loud and first.... next time we repeat a cycle or habit we can recognize we are repeating it and choose a new teacher. This choice to listen to a new voice, literally joins us with all the power of the Universe. This decision, this intent.... is us welcoming the power of Love to heal us and remind us of what is True. This helps us to learn to step aside from ego, into quiet listening and loving, that we may hear the still voice of the Holy Spirit speak to us and give us our part from within.
We are learning together to fulfill our task as minsiters of God, saviors or f the world and bringers of Salvation. We are equal brother in truth, with the shared power to bring peace to this world through our forgiveness. May we all remember our shared identity and celebrate that we are all equal Ministers of God, here to change our minds about the world and to be given the gifts to change the world. And so it is. and so we are.
