Paul and the Lambs Wife

Paul taught that men should work a job, not only to eat, but to support their wife and family. Paul did not have a wife, but he still worked a job in ministry.

However, even though he wasnt supposed to, Paul additionally worked a natural-based job to help maintain the purity of the Lambs Wife (the Church), instead of joining in or competing with the wolves who saw it as their job to eat off the Lambs wife by corrupting the church instead of building her up.

Isn’t it interesting that a lot of the prophets, apostles and teachers in the Bible who called the Church, or God’s people, back to purity were either working natural jobs or fresh off of regular jobs? Jesus was a carpenter, Paul was a tent maker, Daniel was an administrative official, Nehemiah was a cupbearer, Amos was a farmer.

It’s not a sin to be in full time ministry – but sometimes, when there are too many ministers that see it as their job to eat the flock instead of feed the flock – God sends in fresh workers who don’t have pressure to eat off their ministry, but will instead work to restore purity.
