Office or Profession?

What is the character of the office of minister? Should his work be considered a profession? This article shows that it is an office, and provides some characteristics of the office: Christ instituted it, he provides the way in which it should be fulfilled, and he gives the grace and gifts to fulfill the office. All ministerial service, therefore, should constantly point to Christ.
