Summary: God wants us to be doers of the Word
The Anointing Is A Doing Word
* Anointing = Doing
* Ministry = Doing
* Ministry Gifts = Doing
* Anointing before ministry
* Anointing initiates an act of doing
* Book of acts – Doing
Isaiah Chapter 61:1-3 - The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me, Because the LORD has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And the opening of the prison to those who are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn, To console those who mourn in Zion, To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning, The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the LORD, that He may be glorified.”
We are anointed to perform ministry.
Jesus was anointed for ministry

* Paul finished the race
2. Do God’s Word
James 1:22 - But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

7. Do what God does
Jesus did the works of God
