Book Review: George W. Robertson - Am I Called

How do I know if I am called to preach?
What is the ministry?
What does a minister do?

These are some of the questions answered in this small booklet.

Many, when they are saved, feel they need to do something special for the Lord. They are so excited that God has forgiven them, they feel something should be given back to Him. Many feel that they should preach. But are they really called?

What is their motivation to preach? Do they desire it so others can see them? So they can have more authority?

Pastor Robertson has written this fine book to teach those who feel God has called them to the ministry. 

A minister is to serve, not be served. They are to nurture the flock. He leads by example. The flock sees him bruised but not broken.

All Christians go through trials, the minister is to live a life that shows his congregation how to live the Gospel through the good times and bad.

His most important duty is preaching the word. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the work of God. He is to feed his flock.

He is also to pastor his flock. He is to know them so that he knows how to pray for them. Just as Christ prayed for His church, the pastor is to pray for those he is overseeing.

This was a short but good book. I recommend it and give it 4 out of 5 stars.
