Jesus Calls!


Reading: Matthew 4:18-22; Mark 1:16-20

"Whom shall I send? Who will go for Us? ...

Here I am, send me!" (Isa 6:8)


 

Today is the birth anniversary of William Carey (1761-1834) who is called the Father of Modern Missions. He was a shoemaker and he became a Bible translator. All through the Bible, we see God's call given to individuals in various circumstances and how they responded. Moses was a soldier and God called him to lead His people out of Egypt! David was a shepherd and God called him to rule His people! Amos was a shepherd too and God called him to be a prophet! Jesus was a carpenter and He was called to fulltime ministry at the age of thirty!

Peter was a fisherman and Jesus called him to leave the nets and follow Him! Matthew was a tax-collector and Jesus called him to leave his office to serve Him fulltime! Paul was a tentmaker and God called him for a global service demanding all his time! Luke was a medical doctor and he joined Paul in the missionary tours! Whatever may be your profession, God can call YOU!

God's need for labourers is the same both in the Old Testament and the New. "The harvest is plenty but the labourers are few!" (Mt 9:37). There is always vacancy in God's work! There is rush and competition to become doctors, engineers, lawyers and teachers. But few are those who take up Christian service. Will you accept this challenge? Are you interested in literature? You can become a Bible translator. There are nearly 200 languages in India without the Bible. Are you a doctor? Oh how many medical missionaries are needed! Go where there's no doctor. There are many Indian villages without a clinic within 30 km radius. Computer programmers are wanted. God had only one Son and He sent Him as a missionary-martyr into this world! Dear parents, why not send atleast one of your children for the ministry?

David Livingstone (1813-1873) of Scotland was an explorer and he went as a missionary. C.T.Studd (1862-1931) of England was a famous cricketer and he took up missionary service. These and thousands of men all over the world found serving the Lord adventurous and satisfying.

Women are no exception. We still need Ida Scudders (Dec 9) and Pandit Ramabais (Feb 22). There were women in the evangelistic teams of Jesus and Paul (Lk 8:1-5; Phil 4:3). Even after her beloved husband and two sons were burnt alive the same day (Jan 23), Mrs. Gladys Staines continues God's work in the same place, because "There is only one life; it will soon be past; what's done for Christ, alone shall last!"
