    56. 56. Finally I want to tell you3 what a realapostle doesby Paul’s own words
    57. 57. 1 Corinthians 919 For though I am free from all, I havemade myself a servant to all, that I mightwin more of them.20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, in orderto win Jews. To those under the law Ibecame as one under the law (though notbeing myself under the law) that I mightwin those under the law.
    58. 58. 1 Corinthians 9 21 To those outside the law Ibecame as one outside the law(not being outside the law ofGod but under the law ofChrist) that I might win thoseoutside the law.
    59. 59. 1 Corinthians 922 To the weak I became weak,that I might win the weak. Ihave become all things to allpeople, that by all means Imight save some.

    65. 65. Conclusion: There are DifferentAnointings
    66. 66. Each of the five ministries is represented bya specific anointing, and each anointing isdifferent. The authority of the Church of theNew Covenant is represented by the five foldministries and the other elders and deaconsof the local church, who all work together todo the will of God. These ministries are morethan just functions in the body of Christbut its God who anoints men and women toaccomplish His will.
