      God's Plan in the Service (part 2)

      3) The Evangelists - those who carry the good news of the gospel to everyone
      in the world.
      God gave some to be evangelists to fulfill the mission of the church to be
      evangelical. If the church is not evangelizing there is something missing in
      it because evangelism should be one third of the church ministry. Everyone
      of us could be an evangelist in charge of preaching the gospel of the Lord
      Jesus Christ to the whole world (Mark 16:15).

      4) Pastors – are the shepherds who nurture their flock. Their ministry is
      devoted to the spiritual care of the flock and to bring back the lost sheep.
      In (Ezek 34:4) we read about five categories of the Lost Sheep, (the weak,
      the sick, the broken, the strayed, and the lost).

      5) Teachers - to keep the doctrine true and sound, in order to edify and
      build the church of God in sound faith (1 Tim 3:15) and to equip the saints
      for the work of the ministry.

      Many people are evangelizing bringing lost sheep and taking care of their
      people but if they do not have the right doctrine they are not true
      teachers, they are not building the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

        Christ Is Risen! Truly He Is Risen!

        "The Savior comes in various forms to each man for his profit. For to those
        who have need of gladness He becomes a Vine; and to those who want to enter
        in He stands as a Door; and to those who need to offer up their prayers He
        stands a mediating High Priest. Again, to those who have sins He becomes a
        Sheep, that He may be sacrificed for them. He is made all things to all men,
        remaining in His own nature what He is."

        St. Cyril of Jerusalem.
