One who attends or waits on another, Matthew 20:28; so Elisha was the minister of Elijah, 1 Kings 19:21 2 Kings 3:11. These persons did not feel themselves degraded by their stations, and in due time they succeeded to the office of their masters. In like manner, John Mark was minister to Paul and Barnabas, Acts 13:5. Angels are ministers of God and of his people, Psalms 103:21 Hebrews 1:14. The term is applied to one who performs any function, or administers any office or agency: as to magistrates, Romans 15:16 1 Corinthians 4:1 5:5; and to teachers of error, 2 Corinthians 11:15. Christ came to minister, not to be ministered unto; and is called in another sense a minister "of the circumcision," Romans 15:8, and of the heavenly sanctuary, Hebrews 8:2.
