Light in the Word Ministries | Victory Faith Center
Welcome to the Ministry Program!
The greatest honor that God can grant upon a person is to be called to be His servant, to live their life for the purpose of ministry to God and man. Oftentimes we forget the importance of God’s call. We, in our minds can elevate the position of a medical doctor, a mayor, a congressman, or even the president of the United States above that of being a minister unto God.
Let me remind you, that to be a doctor is simply a choice that a person makes. To be a politician means to be elected and appointed by people. But to be a true minister of the gospel, whether a teacher, pastor, apostle, evangelist, or a prophet, requires that God, the creator of the universe has chosen you. He has put His hand upon your life and said, “while others may live for other purposes, I have chosen you to follow Me, and to live for My purpose.” What a tremendous honor that God has chosen you to be His servant! Your responsibility now, is to respond accordingly in the following areas: Your first priority will be to develop a deep, intimate relationship with the Father, such as Abraham, Moses, David, Isaiah, Jesus, and likewise with the Holy Spirit as the New Testament Acts church had, as in the Apostle Paul, Peter, and James. This is accomplished through seeking His face through prayer and time alone with Him; fasting and waiting in His presence.
He tells us that we are to “study to show ourselves approved, a workman that need not to be ashamed…” (2 Tim. 2:15) A program of diligent study, so that we understand the Word and its true application to the multitude of circumstances that make up life. Also, rightly dividing the Word of Truth, so that we are not “carried about by every wind of doctrine…” (Eph. 4:14) The word “minister” means to care for, to serve in humility toward all men, to wait on, and to be an ambassador, representing the King of kings here on earth. No matter what area of service you are chosen to serve in, the focus of your attention is that you would be conformed to the likeness of Christ in your heart, which will manifest itself in your personal life.
Remember, that when you put your hand to the plow, you are not to look back, (Luke 9:62) but you are to press on toward the mark of the high calling of God (Phil. 3:14). I assure you, the devil, relatives, friends, those around you, will oftentimes be used to distract you, to cause discouragement, but remember, one day, we will stand before God to give an account of our obedience in response to His call on our life. Your goal should be on that day to hear the Lord say to you, “Well done, good and faithful servant!”
Congratulations! We are here to encourage and help you fulfill God’s glorious call on your life.
