The Kingdom Service

The service of the Kingdom is a very crucial one and God expects everyone to be involved in this service. It has a pattern and not just done haphazardly. This pattern of kingdom service can be broadly divided into two parts:



The bible made reference to heavenly service in Revelation 4:1-11 where the angels continue in ceaseless praise and worship unto the Almighty God. In the same vain, our prior service as human on earth is to equally praise and worship God ceaselessly.


The service unto God could be broadly divided into several parts but the three highlighted below are very important and form the bedrock of all.

1. The work of tabernacle (Num 3:1-13). These are all ministers in the household of faith e.g. Pastors, Evangelists, Levites ( choirs), Ushers/Guide of Stewards, Lay Readers, Priests, Deacons, Deaconess, Alter Servants, Elders, Elder Mrs., etc

2. The service of true worship. This includes everyone who is true worshippers, worshipping God in truth and in Spirit.

3. Giving for God’s work (I Chronicles 29:1-9). This is an important task for everyone to propel the gospel and get the work moving.

In the light of the facts above, the following are to be borne in mind in respect to this service:

i. It must be done with Spirit divine

ii. It must be done in reference to God

iii. The service must have regenerating power

iv. It has to be done in accordance to God’s will and purpose

v. It must be done in utmost good faith – I Timothy 1:3ff

vi. It has to be done sacrificially

vii. The chosen are SOLELY given some aspect of the service

viii. It must echo God’s love and laws

ix. The service is reward-oriented – Revelation 22;7-15

x. The greatest must be a servant

xi. The service is broad and divisional (I Corinthians 12:12-30)

xii. It must be gospel-centered service of reconciliation (II Corinthians 5:11-21)

xiii. It must be second-coming patterned


These include the following:

1. Rescuing the captive from their bondage (Exodus 3:1-15)

2. The gate keepers (Nehemiah 1:1-11)

3. Selfless service (helping others) Nehemiah 5:1-19

In carrying out the kingdom service as it will be later discussed in this article, there are number of things required of the would-be person and they are highlighted below:


i. A committed heart

ii. The service must be done with absolute moral purity

iii. It must be done in the truest sense of possibility i.e. carrying the “I can do it” spirit

iv. It should be carried out in absolute righteousness

v. It should be done with attached spirit of goodness and kindness

vi. Total trustworthiness is expected from him/her

vii. He/she should be able to combine efforts with others for progress

viii. It must be done in great joyfulness to heavenly satisfaction

ix. It must be done with great sense of humility

x. It should be carried out with mission/goal.
