Hearing God’s Call to Ministry

The Atmosphere for Revelation of

“Now in the church that was at Antioch there were certain prophets and teachers…

As they ministered to the Lord and fasted, the Holy Spirit said, ‘Now separate to Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.'”

( Acts 13:1-2 )

Saul (who was later renamed Paul) and Barnabas had God’s calling upon their lives revealed while they were in an atmosphere that had the following characteristics, as read in the passage above.

An Atmosphere of:

1. Close proximity with established Godly Leadership such as Prophets and Teachers.

2. Ministering to the Desires of the Heart of God.

3. Sincere Humility and Subjection of the Human Will to God’s Will by Fasting.

4. Openness to the Speaking of the Holy Spirit through Human Agency.

5. Readiness to Engage in The Call of God.

Are you interested in knowing what God’s call is for your life? Consider putting yourself in the same atmosphere that Saul and Barnabas had entered into [and lingered in] and in which they eventually received a revelation of the Holy Spirit.

Food for thought. Thanks for reading, friends.
