The Privilege of Being Called

I used to read this Scripture right before I took the stage to preach.

“And I thank Christ Jesus our Lord who has enabled me, because He counted me faithful, putting me into the ministry,” – I Timothy 1:12 (NIV)

Though that’s not my habit anymore, I still hope I live with that attitude towards every sermon, hospital visit, funeral, wedding or counseling session.   It truly is a privilege to serve God’s people.
