THE ERROR OF CHURCH MEMBERSHIP

THE ERROR OF CHURCH MEMBERSHIP says, “You are not a member of our church, so you can’t minister.”

Is he a member of Christ’s church? Does he evidence repentance and faith? Does he have a gift? Then he should minister, and we must open doors for him.

"If Timothy comes, see to it that he has nothing to fear while he is with you, for he is doing the work of the Lord, just as I am. No one, then, should treat him with contempt.” [1 Cor 16:10-11]

It is not our church - a body that we control. We make sure only sound doctrine is taught by gifted men whose lives exemplify the gospel, but nobody regulates the church of Christ. Paul didn’t have to become a member of every church he preached in. He’s a member of the UNITED BODY OF CHRIST. He’s been baptized, he holds the gospel, and he’s gifted and holy; he must be admitted into full usefulness, and if his gift supersedes mine, then let me learn.

This is not a competition!

"Now I hope in the Lord Jesus to send Timothy to you soon, that I also may be cheered when I learn how you are doing. I have nobody else like him who will genuinely care for your needs. For all the others look after their own interests, not those of Jesus Christ." [Phil 2:19-21]

If the whole church desires to hear someone else more than me, so long as he’s preaching Christ, it doesn’t matter. The church is edified, and that’s the goal. He can assist, lead, or I can go somewhere else. Too many men are building their own kingdom, so they feel envious at another’s power, rather than rejoicing and getting power themselves. You have the same God, and He’s sent me to help you - not to draw disciples after myself, takeover by some carnal method, or put you out of business. I want to use your gift, just like I want to use mine.

We are brothers serving the church. Who is Apollos? Who is Paul? Are they arguing over notoriety and position? Are they envious of who gets more attention? Are they competing for ministerial dollars? No. None of this is true. They are serving the Lord, and He gets the most as we work together.

→ Brothers, be united and without envy.
