IT DOESN'T MATTER WHAT WE ARE CALLED BY PEOPLE AS LONG AS WE KNOW WHAT WE ARE CALLED BY GOD AS, AND CALL OURSELVES EXACTLY THAT BY FAITH AND DO WHAT WE ARE CALLED TO BE AND SERVE HIM FAITHFULLY UNTIL OUR END!
It is not true humility when we do not recognize what God has called us to be, when His word clearly says to make sure our calling, which can be any one of the above....calling. Instead pride makes us to think beyond what we ought to think apart from our faith...which means, if we are not satisfied with our calling and want to have another person's calling, we are telling to God that He is partial to some of His children, when in fact God does not give what we cannot handle or put us in to something that we were never made for. Praise the Lord!
Paul one of the greatest apostle of the Church explained this way, "3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith. 4 For as we have many members in one body, but all the members do not have the same function, 5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another." (Rom 12:3-5).
We have got the responsibility to recognize the calling and act accordingly in the exact measure of faith which is what sober thinking is.
We can call ourselves servant of God but be inflated enough to burst forth with pride to fall from the grace like Satan who is the father of it.
I mean to say every apostle, preacher, missionary, teacher, evangelist, pastor, Bishop...etc without acknowledging to people who they are, they become filled with a lack of focus in their life with a so called humility which brings no maturity of calling within the Body of Christ, instead they can become a faithful servant of God by submitting their lives for His holy use in humility to acknowledge who they are called to be before God and men through knowing what is their calling and call themselves when they become convinced of it so that others too can become blessed through their lives for the Glory of God. Every five fold ministry is a gift of Jesus to the Church. Every member ministry is a gift of the Father to the Church. Every personal and collective ministry done to the saints and sinners alike by the gifts of the Holy Spirit is the gift of the Holy Spirit to the Church and humanity at large. Praise the Lord!
All the calling has a honor that God gives to people through it and nobody can fulfill these ministries except the one who is called. The good news is that all the children of God are called for different ministries to bring Glory to God! But one should make sure that they not make it a idol through their pride, instead be a blessing to the Church and the world around them fulfilling the function in humility for the Glory of God and continue till the end to receive the reward from the Lord at the end of it all which is the most important thing overall.
Fire is good when it is used in moderation and in control, it becomes a destructive force for evil and bad happenings that brings sadness and gloom when it is used without control. The same applies to the calling of God in our lives, if we do it for the Glory of God we will be a blessing to be in control of what we have and even receive more from God. But if we do it for selfish reasons without self control we will destroy not only our spiritual lives but others around us which is very sad and never brings glory to God.
"God calls you as His faithful servant in your afterlife, if you take pains to find in your present life what type of servant function God has called you to be, and be faithful to fulfill it to the end for His glory and glory alone." — Abraham Israel
