Christ not only freed us from Satan’s domination; but He gave gifts to men and women
Jesus said , “ Without Me ye can do nothing” in John 15. He empowers His people for service, even today.

God uses ALL parts of the Body of Christ- ordained and licensed ministers of the gospel, as well as the laity/laymen ( those not called to be ordained ministers)- in diverse ways, and with diverse gifts/manifestations of the Holy Spirit, to strengthen and advance His people and kingdom.
