Who now not only minister in the secret place in the holy of holies, but also to the world.
The new covenant Jesus came to set us free, to give new and everlasting life.
He came to preach the good news to the lost.
That is the new garment of ministration which He has given to you and I.
To preach the good news to the lost.
the garments of ministry, for ministering in the holy place —the holy garments for Aaron the priest and the garments of his sons, to minister as priests.’ ” Exodus 35:19
Lord I thank You for this is the day You have made, and we shall rejoice and be glad in it.
And Moses said to the children of Israel, “See, the LORD has called by name Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; Exodus 35:30
and He has filled him with the Spirit of God, in wisdom and understanding, in knowledge and all manner of workmanship, Exodus 35:31
to design artistic works, to work in gold and silver and bronze, Exodus 35:32
in cutting jewels for setting, in carving wood, and to work in all manner of artistic workmanship. Exodus 35:33
“And He has put in his heart the ability to teach, in him and Aholiab the son of Ahisamach, of the tribe of Dan. Exodus 35:34
He has filled them with skill to do all manner of work of the engraver and the designer and the tapestry maker, in blue, purple, and scarlet thread, and fine linen, and of the weaver—those who do every work and those who design artistic works. Exodus 35:35
Lord just like your servants Bezalel and Aholiab fill us with the skills to accomplish that which You have called us to do.

Let us be successful in all that we do.
Most importantly let us do that which is Your will for our lives.
We cannot do without You.
Some of us are going for interviews, some of us are desiring promotions, and some of us are completing projects.
Please Lord empower us with wisdom.
We know wisdom comes from You alone, You are wisdom.
So we are seeking You this morning, do that which You can only do through us Your children.

We need You Lord.

“And Bezalel and Aholiab, and every gifted artisan in whom the LORD has put wisdom and understanding, to know how to do all manner of work for the service of the sanctuary, shall do according to all that the LORD has commanded.” Exodus 36:1
I want us to understand that whatever we are doing it is not for selfish gain, it is always for the Kingdom of God.
It does not matter what career you are in every believer has a ministry that must be fulfilled.
God empowers us with such skills to fulfil His purpose.
To know all manner of work for the service of The Kingdom, that is according to the perfect will of God.
We live to glorify God.
As a Christian what is it that The Lord has empowered you with that you are giving back to The Kingdom?
Are you only giving back to the world?
Is your desire to win souls for The Kingdom?
Then Moses called Bezalel and Aholiab, and every gifted artisan in whose heart the LORD had put wisdom, everyone whose heart was stirred, to come and do the work. Exodus 36:2
God did not just fill Bezalel and Aholiab with gifts but also artisans, and everyone else whose heart was stirred to fulfil His work.
If you love being about Your Father’s business He will surely empower you with the skills to accomplish it.
He can use anyone whose heart is willing.
The best thing about God is that He is never a respecter of persons.
He calls whomever He wills to be chosen.
He looks at the heart.
Is your heart attracted to the things of God?
Or is your heart attracted to the things of the world?
He entrusts His work to those that are faithful.
Those that diligently seek Him, and worship Him in Spirit and in truth.
And they received from Moses all the offering which the children of Israel had brought for the work of the service of making the sanctuary. So they continued bringing to him freewill offerings every morning. Exodus 36:3
It is important to give offerings to bless The Kingdom of God.
No body should have to force you to.
If you should give then give and give out of the willingness of your heart.
God deserves it.
When you give you are giving to Him, and when you do give you shall be blessed beyond measure.
Whatever you give shall be given back to you the more.
Do not give grudgingly.
It is better not to give at all if you do.
Remember when you give you are always blessing The Kingdom of God.
Then all the craftsmen who were doing all the work of the sanctuary came, each from the work he was doing, Exodus 36:4
and they spoke to Moses, saying, “The people bring much more than enough for the service of the work which the LORD commanded us to do.” Exodus 36:5
So Moses gave a commandment, and they caused it to be proclaimed throughout the camp, saying, “Let neither man nor woman do any more work for the offering of the sanctuary.” And the people were restrained from bringing,
for the material they had was sufficient for all the work to be done—indeed too much. Exodus 36:7
When Bezalel and Aholiab were crafting the sanctuary of The Most High, they needed materials.
These materials came from the congregation came from the people of Israel.
They used that which was given to them from others to accomplish that which The Lord had instructed them to do, to benefit The Kingdom.
Your teacher, your lecturer, your instructor has given you materials, books, lessons so that you can accomplish something.
You must always bear in mind that the something in which you are accomplishing is to always give glory to God, and if you are giving glory to God then what you do must benefit His Kingdom.
We all have a purpose.
Every believer has a ministry.
Ministry is not for the pastor alone, in fact every believer has been called to preach the good news, it’s not something that is to be kept to ourselves or just for the church.
In the Old Testament yes that’s how it was, but Jesus became and is the new covenant, and the new covenant says we must not only minister to ourselves but to the world also to win souls for The Kingdom.
Pray to God to empower you with the skills to accomplish and to be successful, but when you do do not let it be for selfish gain.
What we do must always be for God.
Just like we all have different purposes, we all have different ways in which we minister, but it is all for one purpose and that is to glorify God.
This is also just a brief Word of encouragement to those that have assignments, projects, vivas, and dissertations to complete.
God has started a good work in you, and He shall surely bring it to completion.
If only you trust Him, and if only you seek Him first.
How do I seek Him first when I have so much work to do?
Easy, you just seek Him first and everything else shall be added unto you.
He will empower you with wisdom, creative skills, new ideas.
He will grant you favour, wisdom, knowledge, and understanding.
Instead of your projects being stressful and tedious He will make it a joy to study and write your projects.
I’ve been there.
A computer science graduate.
I just gave it all over to God in my final year, and everything became so much easier.
He helped me and carried me through.
If He did it before He can surely do it again.
He is the same yesterday, today, and forevermore.
Just don’t give up!
You are nearly there.
Let God take over, and just rest in Him as He leads you.
Be a carrier of greatness.
Pray to God to empower you with wisdom, creativity, great gifts and skills.
Remembering though that all that He has filled you with is for a purpose, and that is to win souls for The Kingdom.
Every believer has a ministry to fulfil.
Put on the Garments of Ministration.
God bless you.😊❤️🙏
We are carriers of greatness, but remember before we birth greatness there is s process.
