apostles? are all prophets? are all teachers? are all

unto you a more excellent way.
discerning what administration you are called to perform is
answering your calling, you're assisting the Holy Spirit in
saving lost souls. The fulfillment you receive in
accomplishing that, no matter what method God chooses for
you personally, is sure to equal that of any other servant
of God, because it is what God has chosen FOR YOU.
a custom made calling with your name on it.
OTHERS WHO ANSWERED THE
CHRISTIAN CALLING AND HOW THEY RESPONDED TO THE
that didn't hesitate in answering the calling of the Lord
were Joshua and Caleb. They gave their hearts with total
devotion in following the Lord and they were the only two
people from the original children of Israel that were freed
from Egypt, to enter the Promised Land.
Remember, the means by which the Lord's will is done through
us, is not always what we expect. When you consider the
people in the Bible who changed their lives in order to
answer the calling of the Lord, Paul is definitely a person
worth talking about. You can bet that his calling was
anything but what he would have expected following the Lord
to be like.
of all, he was blinded by the light from Heaven:
And he was three days without sight, and neither did
eat nor drink.
he was told that he would suffer many things for the Lord:
For I will shew him how great things he must suffer
for my name's sake.
that sound like what one would expect the "Light of the
Gentiles" to experience as part of their calling? Now,
don't forget, Paul was a persecutor of Christians before he
was called, so no matter who you are, or what your past
beliefs may have been, when you're called by the Lord,
nothing is impossible.
WHAT IS MY CALLING FROM GOD IMPORTANCE
WHAT IS A CALLING BLESSING
was a tentmaker by trade. Though he did practice his craft
after he was called, it was NOT his priority. He didn't do
this to maintain a living, he did it only so that he
wouldn't be held accountable by anyone for his support. The
Lord was Paul's first priority.
Another thing to remember is that if writing or speaking
with eloquence is not one of your strong points, you need
not worry, because it doesn't matter. God will speak through
you. Moses was slow of speech:
And Moses said unto the LORD, O my LORD, I am not
eloquent, neither heretofore, nor since thou hast
spoken unto thy servant: but I am slow of speech, and
of a slow tongue. And the LORD said unto him, Who hath
made man's mouth? or who maketh the dumb, or deaf, or
the seeing, or the blind? have not I the LORD? Now
therefore go, and I will be with thy mouth, and teach
thee what thou shalt say.
confirms that your own talents are not a concern in
answering your calling, the Holy Spirit will work through
But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or
what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that
same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that
speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in
also claimed that he didn't have a way with words, but we
all know how powerfully the Spirit worked through him.
2 Corinthians 11:6
But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge;
but we have been thoroughly made manifest among you in
fact, the rumor was that Paul's speaking abilities were
answering God's calling to you, you're showing Him that you
trust Him with your life, and He will lead you into doing
His will. Don't answer your calling halfheartedly, but with
an attitude like Paul had. He rejoiced especially in the
trials and tribulations of his calling. He was beaten,
whipped, imprisoned, stoned, shipwrecked, robbed, hungered,
cold, and a fugitive ... Just to name a few things (2
Corinthians, Chapter 11).
there be rough times ... Yes. Will it be worth it ...
forget, Jesus said,
... he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
see the hidden meaning in this scripture? Because most
Christians don't die defending the name of Christ, they die
from accidents and natural causes.
This is something deeper ... Giving up your lifeSTYLE
for His sake.
doesn't mean that your life will be sad. He wants to make
Delight thyself also in the LORD: and He shall give
thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto
the LORD; trust also in Him; and He shall bring it to
Because society has dictated that people must practice a
certain standard of living, today's generation spends most
of their waking hours dedicated to work. Preparing for,
traveling to and from, and performing their jobs is what
most people spend the majority of their lives doing. What if
you put God first, instead of your job? Will He not take
care of your food and clothing and other necessities?
But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and his
righteousness; and all these things shall be added
WHAT IS MY CALLING FROM GOD EXPECTATIONS
WHAT IS A CALLING CONCERN
like to direct your attention once more to the fact that God
does move pieces into place in our lives in hopes that we
will recognize His calling to us. Is it any surprise that
the divorce rate is so terribly high in today's world? How
many marriages do you know of, in which the foundation is
the Lord? In a marriage, you become united in serving the
Lord, but you'll find that for most couples, one or neither
have answered their calling and the Lord WILL take away
anything that is more important to people than serving Him.
Lord is calling you, and you feel apprehension in answering
His call ... beware of who is putting the hesitation in your
mind. The "practical" world has no place in spiritual
matters, so start thinking spiritually, and answer your
Father with welcome and gladness, and embrace the rewards
that He promises His servants.
And we know that all things work together for good to
them that love God,
to them who are the called according to his purpose.
JESUS SAID ...
He that loveth father or mother more than me
is not worthy of me:
and he that loveth son or daughter
more than me
is not worthy of me.
And he that taketh not
his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me.
He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that
loseth his life for my sake shall find it.
CONSIDER THIS ...
it not strange that if one's country asks them to step up,
walk away from their family for months and even years at a
time and even to sacrifice their life for their country, in
the military ... It is deemed as NORMAL and NOBLE (Which it
very well may be in many cases) ...
BUT, If Jesus asks
Christians to be willing to do the same for HIS CAUSE, as He
did above ... Even some Christians find it to be an extreme
request and any who choose to do so are seen as Jesus freaks
