MINISTRY (QUALIFICATIONS FOR)

October 14, 2014

Tuesday

 

1 Samuel 3:10

 

Then the LORD came and stood and called as at other times, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel said, “Speak, for Your servant is listening.”

 

 LESSON

 

God’s blessing of and through Samuel continues and grows as a result of his faithful commitment to Him. Even though Samuel knew God and His will, God had not previously communicated with him directly. Finally, God not only called to Samuel but also stood by him suggesting the possibility that Samuel could see Him. The Lord’s repetition of Samuel’s name added a note of urgency.

So many people talk about prayer and reading the Bible and serving and all the other great and wonderful things; but not a lot of people talk about listening to God. The results of receptiveness to the word of God can have a significant impact on our world. Tests of our faith shape our ministry.

 

Memory Verse: Judges 6:15
