Cause and Effect

Every single person in the body of Christ has a purpose as to why they exist. No one lives just to exist, we exist because we were given a purpose to live. A single prayer from the lowliest saint has divine power and carries great energy to affect the masses. God is able to make all things (prayer) to work together for good, to them who love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:26-28) (James 5:16)

For as by ONE man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of ONE shall many be made righteous. (Romans 5:19) Just one person has an effect on the many!!!

No one is above another in the body of Christ as we are all one in Christ who is our head. Yet, every member has a specific job to do within the body of Christ.

Rom 12:6 HAVING GIFTS THAT DIFFER ACCORDING TO THE GRACE GIVEN TO US, LET US USE THEM: if prophecy, in proportion to our faith;
Rom 12:7 if service, in our serving; the one who teaches, in his teaching;
Rom 12:8 the one who exhorts, in his exhortation; the one who contributes, in generosity; the one who leads, with zeal; the one who does acts of mercy, with cheerfulness
.
Not everyone is called into the “FIVE” fold MINISTRY as a pastor, teacher, apostle, prophet, or evangelist, but we are all called into the ministry to MINISTER to one another which is the building up of the body of Christ. We are all called to “SUBMIT” to one another, not just as a wife to her husband

Eph 4:11 And indeed He gave some to be apostles, and some prophets; and some evangelists; and some pastors and teachers;
Eph 4:12 WITH A VIEW TO THE PERFECTING OF THE SAINTS FOR THE WORK OF THE MINISTRY, FOR THE BUILDING UP OF THE BODY OF CHRIST, (ISV)

Notice: The fivefold ministry is not for the perfecting of the Saints, it is for teaching all the saints how that do this work!

1Pe 5:5 Likewise, younger ones be subject to older ones, and ALL BEING SUBJECT TO ONE ANOTHER. Put on humility, because God sets Himself "against proud ones, but He gives grace to humble ones." (LitV)

(1 Peter 5:5)
As iron sharpens iron so does a person sharpen his brother or sister as they minister to each other, speaking the truth in love.

Eph 4:15 Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth [in all things, speaking truly, dealing truly, living truly]. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, [even] Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).
Eph 4:16 For because of Him the whole body (the church, in all its various parts), closely joined and firmly knit together by the joints and ligaments with which it is supplied, WHEN EACH PART [WITH POWER ADAPTED TO ITS NEED] IS WORKING PROPERLY [IN ALL ITS FUNCTIONS], GROWS TO FULL MATURITY, BUILDING ITSELF UP IN LOVE. (AMP)

Everything we do or say whether within our own family, or the family of God in which we are connected, causes spiritual growth unto a mature man building itself up in love when we are speaking the truth (Word of God) to one another in "love" who is God.
