How To Fulfil Your Calling ¦ Video

I usually don’t post videos in this way that have two languages (they normally go in the ‘other languages’ section of my website) but on this occasion I felt that this message is SO important for anyone who wants to fulfil God’s call on their life. May God use it to speak POWERFULLY to you.

How to Fulfil Your Calling – Session 1 (from Serbia):

English Powerpoint: Session 1 – ENG
Serbian Powerpoint: Session 1 – SRB

Session 1 is all about how God works on the earth and how we fit into that. If we can understand the Biblical pattern that God follows when He wants to work on the earth, we will be able to recognise when He is calling us to be involved in His work. This teaching is incredibly eye-opening and encouraging.  I believe it will lay a foundation for your life regarding how to enter into the adventure God has for you and most importantly, how to bear the fruit that He created you to bear, according to Jesus’ words in John 15:16:

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit–fruit that will last”


How to Fulfil Your Calling – Session 2 (from Serbia):

English Powerpoint: Session 2 – ENG
Serbian Powerpoint: Session 2 – SRB

In session 2 I talk briefly about the gifts and fruit of the Holy Spirit, as well as how God enables us to operate BEYOND our natural ability. I then cover 7 things that ALL BELIEVERS are called to do, before moving on to how we can find our personal calling. I explain specifically how God wants to guide you in the decisions you have to make, big and small, on a daily basis.


How to Fulfil Your Calling – Session 3 (from Serbia):

English Powerpoint: Session 3 – ENG
Serbian Powerpoint: Session 3 – SRB

In session 3 I talk about 5 things that can hold you back from fulfilling your calling, and how you can overcome all of these things:

1. Feeling of Failure
2. Pride
3. Fear
4. Unresolved Issues
5. Feeling unqualified

In summary, the three things we need to fulfil God’s call on our lives are:

  1. Intimacy with Jesus

Acts 4:13 – When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had BEEN WITH JESUS.

  1. The Word of God

2 Tim 3:16-17 – All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be THOROUGHLY EQUIPPED for every good work.

  1. The Empowerment of the Holy Spirit

Acts 4:31 – After they prayed, the place where they were meeting was shaken. And they were ALL FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT and spoke the word of God boldly.

If these teaching have blessed you, share them with someone!

Whose Ministry? ¦ Devotional

Scripture: Now if the ministry of death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with such glory that the Israelites could not gaze at the face of Moses because of its fleeting glory, will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious? – 2 Corinthians 3:7-8

In today’s scripture, Paul the apostle is making a comparison between the old covenant ministry (the ten commandments) and the new covenant ministry, in which all born-again believers in Jesus Christ are called to play a part.

Have you ever wondered what part you might be called to play, or what your ‘ministry’ is? Perhaps you’re already involved at church, or are serving God in some way that you believe is helping to advance His Kingdom on earth? Maybe you’re not quite sure what to do!

There are many kinds of churches and ministries to be found all over the world, and lots of good causes to get involved with, but how can we know which are really making a difference?

To help us get an idea of what God’s ministry on the earth is all about, I would like us to focus on five words which Paul uses to describe the new covenant ministry. He calls it ‘the ministry of the Spirit’. That’s a really important phrase. The ministry which God has called us to is not yours, it’s not mine and it’s not somebody else’s. It’s the ministry of the Spirit. This means that the Holy Spirit Himself carries out the ministry, through us!

With this understanding, we can see that if we’re not being led by the Holy Spirit, working in the power of the Holy Spirit, or operating in the gifts of the Holy Spirit, we’re potentially attempting to do the Spirit’s work with our own human ability. We need to be very careful that we’re not trying to ‘build the church’ or ‘build a ministry’ using human methods and human strength, because ‘unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labour in vain’ (Psalm 127:1).

Jesus told us clearly that He would build His Church (Matthew 16:18), and that, apart from Him, we can do absolutely nothing (John 15)! The ‘work’ or ‘ministry’ that we carry out in our own strength will amount to nothing, but when we yield to the Holy Spirit and allow Him to gift, lead and empower us, we will see truly glorious things happen.

Think about Peter. His best human efforts got him as far as betraying Jesus. When he was restored and filled with the Holy Spirit, 3,000 were saved, after his very first sermon. That’s the ministry of the Spirit!

After Jesus gave His disciples the Great Commission, He told them, “but stay in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high” (Luke 24:49). It seems quite clear to me that God never intended us to try to preach the gospel, heal the sick, start churches or do any other form of ministry without the power of the Holy Spirit. After all it’s His ministry, not ours.

Prayer: Father, thank You that You’re carrying out Your ministry on earth by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Thank You that, even today, I have the privilege of being able to play a part in this glorious ministry. Thank You that You’re ready to gift, lead and empower me to do what I could never do in my own strength. I want to say sorry for the times I’ve tried to serve You in my own way, with my own ability or strength, and when I’ve thought that it all depended on me. Thank You that, as I allow You to lead me, You’ll give me the gifts and the empowering I need to fulfil the part You’ve called me to play for Your glory. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
