How I was Called to be a pastor…

Well for those of you who I have not told yet, God has spent the last 2 months working in me to realise that he is calling me to be a pastor. In this post i will try to explain the ways in which I found God to be calling me to this as it is certainly not something I would choose to do unless under duress. So the ways in which God has called me:

  • A drastic increase in my passion for the Word of God. Over the last 2 months there is nothing i have wanted to do more than study the Bible and understand it and pass on and shout about the amazing things revealed to me through that.
  • An ache in my heart for Churches that do not preach what the bible says, that preach for numbers and just to please people. I am passionate about seeing Biblical churches stand up in this world and not be afraid to preach the Bible.
  • About 1.5 years ago God called me to write sermons, not to preach or anything but to write sermons. At the time I didn’t know whether this was for some future plans God had in store or just to make me study the Word more.
  • Just knowing that God is calling me to this, it is hard to explain. It is not really a voice in my head, or an emotion in my heart but I just have conviction that God is saying do this. I know this can be hard to understand for some but I truly believe God is telling me to do this.
  • And lastly after i had prayed and thought through all of this and realised God was calling me to this, i spoke to my friend Cat back in Surrey and when i told her bout this she explained how about a year ago God put in her that I was going to be a pastor but she felt that she was not supposed to tell me then. So she confirmed this calling.
