You are not alone in pondering the meaning of what Christian service is, or what it means to be “called” by God to serve in Christian ministries. Theologians all have various definitions of what they think "called by God '' means

The scripture has various ways God called his servants. Starting from historical stories of the old testament to historical stories of the new testament.

The scripture has various ways God called his servants. Starting from historical stories of the old testament to historical stories of the new testament. 

Moses, Aron, David, Peter, Paul etc all were called by God in different ways and they all render their service to God in different ways. 

For instance, Moses was called while in exile to lead the children of Israel out of Egypt while Aron was called to bear the sin of the Israelites to God, and represent the Israelite sacrifices (Priesthood). David was the King of Israel and he fought many battles to conquer the lands God promised his people, the Israelites. 

Apostle Peter and Apostle Paul were ministers of the new testament and they were both called but to different people. Apostle Peter was called to majorly minister to the Jews while Apostle Paul ministered to Gentiles.  

People like Mary the Mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, etc all served God in various capacities. 

So, have you considered what your service to God is? Has God given you the blueprint of your work for him? 

Every human on earth has the mandate to proclaim the Gospel to the whole world. Have you considered the way (profession) in which God wants you to function for him?

In this time and age, God is not only using people in the five-fold ministry (Apostle, Prophet, Evangelist, Pastors and Teacher), he is spreading his tentacles into various professions like the Fashion industry, Entertainment Industry, Engineering, Medicine, Aviation, Teaching, Etc. 

Do not think you don't have a call to service from God. Our primary purpose is to serve him in whatever capacity we find ourselves. 


Many people will tell you how they got their calling. Some people's calling can be dramatic like Paul's while some can be less dramatic like Peter's. Whichever way, God is calling and that is the focus. 

You may be confused as to how God can call you. Yours may not be like Paul or Peter, yours may be through peace of your inner Spirit towards a thing, through what you love doing, through your talents and circumstances you have been through. 

Also, God's calling is not without provision. For God to have called you, he had prepared people that would work with you in service to him. He also provides every finance you would need. Yours is just to hear from him to know what he is telling you to do per time. 

The call of God is the highest calling on earth. It is what you will continue to do in eternity. Our service to God on earth would not end here, it will continue when we see him in heaven. 

Just like Paul, run the race and finish your cause so you can lay down your sword at the feet of the master.
