And some to stretch chicken

And His gifts were [varied; He Himself appointed and gave men to us] some to be apostles (special messengers), some prophets (inspired preachers and expounders), some evangelists (preachers of the Gospel, traveling missionaries), some pastors (shepherds of His flock) and teachers. His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people), [that they should do] the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body (the church), [That it might develop] until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the [[a]full and accurate] knowledge of the Son of God, that [we might arrive] at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him. Ephesians 4:11-13 (AMP)

We were given a role to fulfill. We were given a job to do. Each one of us was given something to do to bring unity toward our faith. We weren’t all given the same job either. God has given us different things. Some of us are good at certain things. I think that at some level or another we are able to do all these things. One of these roles is our main job. It’s the job we’ve been equipped to do. God has given us tools to help us do the job. The jobs are easier to do when you are given the right tools. I’ve been building houses with Amor Ministries. This past year, I was out in the field working the same group as the founder, Scott. Now Scott and I have been given jobs to do. Scott is the some to run the ministry. I am the some to help the ministry. As part of running the ministry, Scott hadn’t been field for years. However, I’ve been in the field, learning the tricks of building a house, being made aware of the tools and the best way to use them. Scott had a worksite to be at and I had two to work on.  As the building progressed, there came the time to stretch the chicken wire. Stretching chicken wire can be a hard job without the right tool. It was a day Scott wasn’t looking forward, a day that would build my excitement. Scott started to get frustrated at the job at hand; he stops and asks God to help. Scott is aware that he doesn’t have tools; God hasn’t equipped him for this job. He realizes that he isn’t the some to stretch chicken wire. However, I was at my site using a 12 inch piece of pvc pipp used to do the job. I love the pvc pipe because it makes the job so easy. If I were in Scott’s shoes unaware of the pipe I would hate it too. I am the some to stretch the chicken wire. I was equipped to do the job.  Shortly, after he was done praying for God to help him, a field staff showed up and showed him the pipe. Scott became the some to stretch the chicken wire.

 

We all have job. We are capable of doing any of these, but only as God equips us. You do your job and work to bring unity, but you must be willing to step out of the role you normally and let God equip to do other things. It’s ok to step out of the office and into the field without knowing how to use. Some of us to be apostles, prophets, missionaries, pastors, and teachers (Eph 4:11) and some to stretch chicken wire.
