Who is the most important person in the church?

Pastor? Treasurer? Youth Leader? Organist? Cleaner?


Acts 6: 1-7

ne of the ways in which the early church cared for one another was by giving practical help to widows (women whose husbands had died and so had no one to support them) and others in need. A few people went around collecting money and goods each week, and then they distributed it to those in need.

Would we think this was a very important job? But look at the sort of people the apostles chose to be responsible for it: people "full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom" (v. 3). The apostles needed the Holy Spirit to help them preach the gospel. But those who did the ordinary everyday jobs in the church needed the Holy Spirit's help, too.


. . . God for all the people in your church who do the "behind-the-scenes" jobs. Thank God that the Holy Spirit can help them do their jobs just as much as he helps those who do the more "upfront" jobs like preaching and teaching.
