CALLED

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Hebrews 5:1-10

No one takes this honor upon himself; he must be called by God, just as Aaron was.
Hebrews 5:4, NIV
 
Entrance to ministry must be through the call of God. The door to ministry is the call of God.

“And no man taketh this honour unto himself, but he that is called of God, as was Aaron” (Hebrews 5:4).

If you do not have a divine call, you are not supposed to be in the ministry. You must have a personal conviction of a call which sets you apart for the ministry.

Your call to ministry is the foundation of your ministry. It defines everything that you will ever do in the ministry.

The door to ministry is different from the door to other professions. Your entrance to the medical profession is by graduating from a medical school. The entrance to the legal profession is by graduating from a law school. The entrance to the accounting profession is by obtaining an accountancy certificate. However, the entrance to ministry is not by acquiring a certificate from any school, including a Bible school. The entrance to ministry is by receiving and obeying a divine call.

“Wherefore also we pray always for you, that our God would count your worthy of this calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of his goodness, and the work of faith with power: That the name of our Lord Jesus Christ may be glorified in you, and ye in him, according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thessalonians 1:11-12).
