Consider your calling!

What’s your calling?

Some years ago, in Christendom a very common question asked was, “What is your calling?” I feel, now days no one is asking about this anymore.

Mindful of calling

When I was a new in faith in Christ, people were very much mindful about what God is calling them for. They were open to God’s calling. They were willing to listen to God’s call.

Fulfilling the call

Many people left their secular jobs and got involved in different ministries. I am not asking you to follow the suite. A person who is intending to go into the ministry should be very sure of God’s call.

Difficulties of ministry

Going into any ministry is challenging. It is not at all a comfortable vocation. It can bring much distress. It may mean living with minimum. It can bring financial constraints. Doing a ministry is not a joke.

Best yet to come

I am still waiting for my ministry. At the moment I believe that blogging is a satisfactory ministry. But God only knows the best. I believe that best is yet to come.

Pause please

I would like to encourage you to pause a little. Check out what is God’s calling for your life. Is he calling you for some ministry? Give it a thought. There is a great need in the vineyard. The workers’ are less.

Do not pass me by

God is still waiting for someone to respond to the divine call. Lord, please show me my call. Whenever you are distributing ministries, do not pass me. Give me some ministry Lord. I do not want to waste my life. Use me for your glory.

Shalom πŸ•ŠοΈ

  1. Great read. I pray often about my calling, and where God would have me be. We are the same, I too feel that blogging is my sanctuary ministry for the time being. Thanks for sharing my friend. Many blessings to you.

  2. A few years ago a friend introduced me to https://www.licc.org.uk/ (The London Institute for Contemporary Christianity) as I prayed about whether to leave the workplace for ministry. LICC helped me see that my job is my ministry β€” that God places us in specific places at specific times to further his Kingdom. I think modeling a life as a follower of Jesus in everyday life is just as important as formal ministry. LICC has some great tools to help churches equip Christians for this ministry. I have learned that being intentional in treating my workplace as a ministry has born surprising fruit.

  3. When it comes to God’s call, I always remember 1 Samuel 3:4, wherein God called Samuel many times but he did not know that it was God who was calling. But it amazes me that even though he did not know it was God, he repeatedly responded, β€œHere I am!”.

    Then the LORD called Samuel, and he said, “Here I am!” – 1 Samuel 3:4
