A Call To Serve

Welcome to Called Serve.

Many people who have patronized one or more organizations would agree that they do not always come out the door with a wide smile. It may seem as if the people in that organization are paid to raise your blood pressure, get you angry/frustrated, kill your morale and make your life miserable. There can be no better classification for this than emotional abuse.

People have become used to abuse and sin in the name of poor service. It is true that you can not stop a bird from flying on top of your head but you can surely stop it from building it’s nest on top of your head. Let me rattle a few cages here, “Most of the poor service kind of abuse we receive is partly our fault”. We allow people to tread on us like some cheap cloth. The only thing necessary for evil to prevail is for good people to do nothing.

Iam certainly not advocating for war or anything close to it, but rather a call to rise up and promote the God kind of service excellence. You may feel that it is hopeless, “what difference can one person make” but wait…Jesus’ disciples, Paul and a few friends turned the world upside down in the book of Acts. None of us are everything but each one of us is something and together we achieve more.

There is enough fighting, cruelty and hate in the world already. The world could use some more kindness, gentleness and love. Service excellence is righteousness. Join a team of people who have a calling to serve and believe they can make a difference in our generation by serving God and Mankind. Become a member of “Called To Serve Ambassadors” and use your God given talents and Spiritual gifts to be the change you want to see.

Like they say, in life there are three groups of people; those who watch things happen, those who wonder what has just happened and those who make things happen. A call to serve goes to those who believe they make things happen. Service is the only difference that makes a difference where there is no difference. Be the difference that will make a difference. Service is what separates the men from the boys and now, may the real men and women please stand up!

    I’m blessed to have you as a friend, your vision to inspire others to serve through Christ is inspiring. if our organisation can be a God fearing organisation, there is no way we will fail as it is said in his word “seek ye first the kingdom of God and all things shall be added unto you”. continue the good work sister and we will all support you ” we do all things through Christ who strengthens us”. after all is said and done praise and honour be to God for he is worthy to be praised. stay blessed.


    • Thank you Vimbai. I am also blessed to have you as a friend. Indeed all Glory and honour belongs to God for He is the only one worthy of praise. All we should do is to be signposts that point others to Him, not just by our words but also our character.
