God is calling you to Christian service

One of the biggest problems with Christians today is that we are hiding our light within the four walls of the Church. We are so comfortable it’s scary.

We live in a hurting world. We live in an age of  spiritual darkness. We ware constantly dealing with lost souls who are seeking light but somehow can’t find it.

Can you imagine where you would be if someone didn't make an effort to get you into the presence of God; where you gave your life to Jesus?

I know I can and it’s horribly freaky just thinking about it. I don’t know where I would be without Jesus.

But somehow we seem to have forgotten that darkness we lived in. Somehow we have convinced ourselves that we have “arrived”, I’m not sure where exactly.

Nowadays all we do is warm up the pews and fill Churches with our “presence” as if we are doing God a favour.

No commitment, no service, nothing. Just Christian women who are waiting for Jesus to return.

Because of all that God has done for us, we cannot become complacent in our faith!   God wants to use our lives  for His glory as Christian women!!

Basically we were saved to be God's ambassadors. We were saved to declare the praises of Him who called you (1 Peter 2:9).

God is calling your to Christian service

Why?


Jesus explained: “I have other sheep, too, that are not in this sheepfold. I must bring them also (John 10:16)… And then He told them, "Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone (Mark 16:15)

According to Jesus, Christian service is serving the world. You were created and saved and called and commanded to join God in His mission here on earth.

For God so loved the World (John 3:16) and Jesus did not come “to call the righteous, but sinners”.

In Matthew 5:13 Jesus called his followers the light and salt of the world.  Notice that Jesus never said in Matthew 5:13, "You are the light of the Church," but rather, "You are the light of the world."

As you can see from that scripture, Christian service is not about being a regular Church attender, a contributor to the Churches finances; a teacher of a class, a leader of a young people's ministry, etc. Of course there is nothing wrong with those things.

Most Christian women are waiting for a platform where they can speak to the masses or for an opportune time to minister to the needs of others.

But the Bible shows us many people who were never qualified in the eyes of men and yet God called them to the work He had prepared.

And if you think that this work is for the five-fold ministry then read your Bible again. Ephesians 4:11-12 says, “so Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of service…"

People need the Lord and  Jesus calls us to reach out  and to share His light and love to the hurting world. 

We are already empowered by the Holy Spirit.  The question  is are  you going to answer God's call to go out there  or are you going to simply watch from the sidelines?

Remember your success in this life is measured by how many people you serve not how many people serve you!
