A Call to Ministry Leadership

Tonight I talked with a student who finally submitted to the Lord’s calling on his life to ministry leadership (or full-time ministry).  Every believer is called to ministry, few are called to be pastors/missionaries/etc.  It was neat, really neat to hear this young man know with such clarity what God wanted him to do with his life.  He knows there are a few details to get worked out since he’s still 16, but he’s excited…and SHOULD be!  It reminded me of the moment I knew what I was supposed to do with my life.  I pray for the other students that were there and heard God calling them to be different, not just live different!  Pray they shine as brightly as they can because God is the light that shines in us and may HE be bright!

Are you ministering to the people around you?  Are you called to something more?  Don’t hesitate to say yes!  It is scary and terrifying and exhilarating and way better than saying no.  It isn’t easy, but it is worth it!  God promises it is…take Him up on His challenge!
