Larry Randolph in his 2010 Holy Spirit Conference message The Coming Shift said, “Someone once said that the pay is the same in heaven. I, too, believe Christians will be rewarded in the next life as a result of obedience and faithfulness to their calling, not because of their ministry status. The presumption that we will be better compensated because of our position of influence in the hierarchy of the church is unsupported by Scripture (see Matthew 20:1-16).
Actually, those in hidden places, devoted to doing the simple work of the ministry will fare just as well as the great patriarchs of the faith. Nursery workers, intercessors, businessmen, and others faithful to their callings will receive the same pay as apostles, prophets and other governmental ministries. All will be compensated equally if they have been faithful to perform what they were called to do. On the contrary, those who have labored in areas other than their primary calling might find their reward to be less than expected (see Luke 22:26-27).
The bottom line is that believers must align themselves with the opportunity best suited for their gifting. I am also convinced that this alignment will completely alter our perspective of ministry and change our focus from us to Him. Once we have made the vision shift we will see Christ lifted up as the focal point of end-time revival.”
