The Calling

The Calling

I am a minister.
I minister to the largest mission field in the world.
I minister to children.

My calling is sure. My challenge is big. My vision is clear. My desire is strong. My influence is eternal. My impact is critical. My values are solid. My faith is tough. My mission is urgent. My purpose is unmistakable. My direction is forward. My heart is genuine. My strength is supernatural. My reward is promised. And my God is real.

In a world of cynicism, I offer hope.
In a world of confusion, I offer truth.
In a world of immorality, I offer values.
In a world of neglect, I offer attention.
In a world of abuse, I offer safety.
In a world of ridicule, I offer affirmation.
In a world of division, I offer reconciliation.
In a world of bitterness, I offer forgiveness.
In a world of sin, I offer salvation.
In a world of hate, I offer God’s love.

I refuse to be dismayed, disengaged, disgruntled, discouraged or distracted. Neither will I look back, stand back, fall back, go back or sit back.

I do not need applause, flattery, adulation, prestige, stature or veneration. I do not have time for business as usual, mediocre standards, small thinking, outdated methods, normal expectations, average results, ordinary ideas, petty disputes or low vision.

I will not give up, give in, bail out, lie down, turn over, quit or surrender.

I will pray when things look bad. I will pray when things look good. I will move forward when others stand still. I will trust God when obstacles arise. I will work when the task is overwhelming. I will get up when I fall down.

My calling is to reach boys and girls for God. It is too serious to be taken lightly, too urgent to be postponed, too vital to be ignored, too relevant to be overlooked, too significant to be trivialized, too eternal to be fleeting and too passionate to be quenched.

I know my mission.
I know my challenge.
I also know my limitations, my weaknesses, my fears and my problems.
And I know my God.

Let others get the praise.
Let the church get the blessing.
Let God get the glory.

I am a minister.
I minister to children.
This is what I do.

    Dear Rojer Fields,
    Greetings in the precious name of Jesus!
    I am quite enthralled by your passion for the children. I am serving with the Free Methodist Church in India. The growth in the population of India is rampant. There is an ocean of children. My heart goes out for them. Our church is conducting Sunday School for these children. They don’t come from a christian background. But they love to come and they sing songs of praise and worship in Hindi anf Marathi languages. Your 200 free games for the children has helped to shape our perspective and hence forth we are going to enjoy every bit of the children ministry. Thank you and may God bless you abundantly. Also please pray for us.
    Rev. Arvind Mantode
