2 Kings 12:4-5 (KJV) And Jehoash said to the priests, All the money of the dedicated things that is brought into the house of the LORD, even the money of every one that passeth the account, the money that every man is set at, and all the money that cometh into any man’s heart to bring into the house of the LORD,Let the priests take it to them, every man of his acquaintance: and let them repair the breaches of the house, wheresoever any breach shall be found.
Though this passage is directed to the priests, it has a New Testament application to every Christian. The King instructed the priests to take whatever money was given and to apply it “wheresoever any breach shall be found.” There was:
Personal accountability and
expected of every priest and every man the priest could recruit.
It ought to be the same in the work of God today. God’s business is not the business of a certain group of believers only. It is the business of every Christian to:
Identify the breaches in God’s work
Recruit others to help repair the breach and
Use whatever God has given them to get the work done.
This project was not successful until some were commissioned to organize and supervise that it be done. That is the work of the pastor today. He is not called to do the work alone. He is called to organize God’s people so it gets done.
