Every One Has A Part To Play In God's Work: Exodus 38:1-31
Every One Has A Part To Play In God's Work.
We read, in verse 8, of ‘the ministering women...’. See also 35:25-26,29 - ‘all women... all the women... All the men and women...’. Male and female - We need each other. We are ‘one in Christ Jesus’. In Him, ‘there is neither male nor female’(Galatians 3:28). There should never be a competitive spirit. We are to complement each other. In verse 25, we read of ‘the silver from those of the congregation’. God’s work does not depend entirely on those who have been called to be leaders. Each of us must play our part. There should be no pulling in different directions. We belong together. We are to work together. Let’s pull together, pooling our resources, pulling our weight. Among God’s people, there is ‘gold’- but it must be ‘used for the work’(24). Will you be worth your weight in gold - for God?
