They Might Not Be Called For What You Want of Them
The beginning of the crisis in Saul’s life was because he responded to the pressure mounted upon him by the people in the time of war.
He offered sacrifice, because the people were leaving him; whereas that was the prerogative of the priest. He finished with his costly mistake when the one called to offer sacrifice arrived. God judged him for that. The kingdom will not continue in his house again.
The problems in Nigeria today have caused people to define their role expectation of prominent Christian voices. Even those who should know better have joined the call to these personages to do what God might not have called them for.
If they respond to the popular call, they might end up disappointing Him who called him or worse still, loose their place if they don’t loose their lives.
Every ministry calling is an honour from God and each calling has it bounds. When a man listens to those who did not call him to do what they want, He may not be preparing to meet His maker, unto whom He will definitely render his account.
Christians ministers are not called into their role by the people. Some will never express political opinion because they respect their bounds.
You may be angry with Him, but you will not answer for him on that day.
It is not everyone that has business with what you want of them.
