There is only one way to serve Jesus
and the kingdom of God and that is to be led by His Spirit and to do
as He instructs us, but we have to be trained, taught and disciplined
by Him before He can use us as He wills. It is a life long calling
and we will have to bear that until the end. Just like any tree
planted in the Master’s vineyard, we will be pruned, corrected and
adapted to be able to bear more fruit. Every tree that does not bear
fruit will get cut down and burned.
We must be like clay in the hands of
the potter, moldable so that He can form and make us into whatever
shape and form is useful to Him.
Jesus calls us for His plan and
purpose. Either we answer to the call, follow Him and yield to Him or
He will discard of us. If we do not want to serve Him, we have no
place in His kingdom.
Jesus called Paul to serve Him. Paul
testified: 14“And
when we had all fallen to the ground, I heard a voice saying to me in
the Hebrew dialect, ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me? It is
hard for you to kick against the goads.’ 
I said, ‘Who are You, Lord?’ And the Lord said, ‘I am Jesus
whom you are persecuting. 
get up and stand on your feet; for this purpose I have appeared to
you, to appoint you a minister and a witness not only to the things
which you have seen, but also to the things in which I will appear to
you from the 
Jewish people
and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you, 
open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from
the dominion of Satan to God, that they may receive forgiveness of
sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith
in Me.’ Acts 24:14-18.
then still Saul was persecuting the followers of Jesus. He was
kicking against the goads, the prongs that Jesus had laid in his way,
but he answered to the call and followed Jesus. He was taught by
Jesus Himself through revelation.
will take you along a very narrow specific path where you do His will
to achieve His purpose. His instruments are precise and His goals are
exact. You will be led by Him and do that which He tells you to do,
no deviation. He will break you before He makes you into a suitable
instrument to be used by Him.
will break your will. He will destroy your plans, your
self-confidence, your illusions and show you the bare truth that
without Him you can do nothing. Without Him we are nothing.
is Lord. He reigns. All His servants serve Him but they will first
learn obedience through what they suffer, just like Jesus Himself
learned obedience through what He suffered.
came to do the will of the Father, and like Him, those who become His
disciples, those who were called by Him and who answered the call,
will do His will, not their own. They will speak his words, not their
own. They will glorify Him, because He lives in them and they do His
we become clay in the hands of the Potter? Can He form and make us as
He pleases, or are we stubborn, unyielding, ready to be discarded?
Jesus bless you.

    May his grace which was bestowed upon Paul be with me also.
    because I need be that he want for me, and need do what Lord want that I do in my life and before leave this earth.
