And she sent and called Barak the son of Abinoam out of Kedeshnaphtali, and said unto him, Hath not the LORD GOD of Israel commanded, saying, Go and draw toward mount Tabor, and take with thee ten thousand men of the children of Naphtali and of the children of Zebulun? And I will draw unto thee to the river Kishon Sisera, the captain of Jabin's army, with his chariots and his multitude; and I will deliver him into thine hand. And Barak said unto her, If thou wilt go with me, then I will go: but if thou wilt not go with me, then I will not go. And she said, I will surely go with thee: notwithstanding the journey that thou takest shall not be for thine honour; for the LORD shall sell Sisera into the hand of a woman. And Deborah arose, and went with Barak to Kedesh. And Barak called Zebulun and Naphtali to Kedesh; and he went up with ten thousand men at his feet: and Deborah went up with him. (Jdg 4:6-10)
When GOD calls us, we should be obedient, not putting conditions on our response or telling GOD how we want things to be. He has called all His people into His service, and our response should be Yes, Lord. Any thing less than full obedience is disobedience, which GOD cannot bless, and He may use some one else instead, some one who will obey and serve Him and He will chastise and correct those that grieve or quench His Spirit when He directs or commands us.
He has called His people to holiness that we may serve Him and accomplish His will and do His work in this world, not to earn or keep that which He has given us, but because of our love for Him who is our Lord and Saviour. He has called us to the battle and to the work, and He goes before us as the Commander of the Lord's army, and we are His ambassadors, soldiers, ministers, and workers, placed in His body as He wills and for His purposes to conform us to the image of his Son and draw all men unto Himself that they might receive His great Salvation.
As His servants we are to minister to others around us who are hurting and in need that they may see Jesus in us, the hope of Glory. As His soldiers and workers we are to equip, enable, encourage, and edify one another in love and in the Word so that we are engaged in His battles until we are all grown up into the full measure of Jesus Christ. As His ambassadors we are to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to this lost and dying world, that those who hear the Good News of forgiveness through repentance of sin and reconciliation with the Father through faith in His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary might believe in Him and have eternal life in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. GOD calls you to trust Him and what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD, forgiveness from GOD, and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, to give you a new life in Christ. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life, now and always.
