Answering God's Call

You know that God is calling you because there is an incessant desire in your heart to know God. The desire to know God must precede the desire to serve Him. The latter comes only after. Sometimes the simple thirst to know God leads the seeker into the service of God, almost unconsciously. The service of God, however, must flow out of the knowledge of God.

The celestial calling is to all of us. Everyone has received the same call, which is essentially to know God. Once we venture ourselves into this quest of knowing God, the desire to know him turns into the love we have for him.

The truth is we cannot serve what we do not know. We cannot serve until we love. To serve God is actually to love him in every soul. It’s God we serve in others. Service and love are the same. However, you cannot love God until you know him. This is why Jesus told the Samaritan woman: “we know what we worship.”

If your desire to serve God does not come from the desire to know him, your service or ministry could easily be corrupted by selfish motives and egoistic intentions. First and foremost God is calling us to oneness with Christ, and this is precisely where the desire to know God will lead you to. For no one can really serve God except his Son.

It is the Christ in us who does the service. Those who are one with the Christ in consciousness are the elected. “Many are called, but only a few are elected“, meaning very few people answer the call the right way. It is the way to peacefulness and happiness.

Only the son of God in us could perform a selfless service. This selfless service is the substance of true ministry. Answering the call is to put other people needs before your own. This is the grace that will guarantee your steadfastness in the things of God. Considering others needs prior to your own is practicing pure love.

In conclusion, answering the call does not mean to run and do anything without; meaning changing your current life situations or running to start ministry. There is an inner work that first must be done. In the deep recesses of your mind there must be a transformation. This transformation is the result of your oneness with the Christ within. This occurs only when you desire to know God personally and to experience Him deep within your heart.

Once you focus on the within your without will naturally fall into place. And once you able to see God in every person regardless of their behaviors, personal beliefs, race, or religion, you have answered the call. And only now are you ready to serve Him.

I would love to hear from you :-)
