To Elders and Pastors first...a weighty responsibility
Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
Then to each individual member in the church the responsibility to feed one another:
1 PETER 4:10
As every man hath received the gift, [even so] minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
The Holy Spirit gives each member in the congregation different gifts as he sees fit, to be used in communal upbuilding and spiritual feeding of the entire body of believers:
1 Cor 12:7-11
To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice; to another he gives the gift of special knowledge. 9 The Spirit gives special faith to another, and to someone else he gives the power to heal the sick. 10 He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and to another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to know whether it is really the Spirit of God or another spirit that is speaking. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages,* and another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. 11 It is the one and only Holy Spirit who distributes these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.
Verse 12 12 The human body has many parts, but the many parts make up only one body. So it is with the body of Christ. 13 Some of us are Jews, some are Gentiles, some are slaves, and some are free. But we have all been baptized into Christ's body by one Spirit, and we have all received the same Spirit.*Hope the above scriptures will speak to your dads heart.
