This is another amazing talk of Joel. He cuts it sharp. This is all about your ordination. An ordination not to glorify you, not to be set apart, not to be special. No No No. No, you are ordained to be better equipped to give more abundantly. God only gives!!!!
“When the Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, I am ordained.” But I am not ordained to be set apart. I am ordained to heal the sick, to comfort, to feed, to forgive. That is the purpose of ordination! Not that I may be glorified, but that I may be better equipped to give more abundantly, to share more freely, to understand more universally: that it isn’t only the children of my flesh that are my children, but that all of the children of this world are my children, and I have an equal responsibility to share with them.
