The Purpose of Ministry

"The ministry in any age is in danger of losing its purpose. Only when it remembers the one who gave us that ministry-the one who did not consider equality with God as something to be grasped, the one who humbled himself by taking the very form of a servant (Phil 2:5-11)–only then can it know its true purpose, which always has been and always will be diakonia, service."

Joel C. Elowsky, “The Ministry in the Early Church,” Concordia Theological Seminary 76 (2012), 310.
