Officership in The Salvation Army - Some Thoughts

Heard some teaching during the week at 'Officer's Fellowship.' Have also been thinking...

* Following God's will is more important than the pursuit of Power, Pleasure or Possessions.

* Followers of Jesus need passion! If the leader doesn't have it, then fair chance the followers ain't gonna!!

* Luke 13 speaks of refertilising a fruitless fig tree. Our lives need to be nourished again and again by the Word of God.

* Jesus came to give life the fullest.

* In relation to the calling of people into Salvation Army officership. To what degree does God simply say, 'Who will go for us?' Does he only tap people on the shoulder and say, 'You should sign up for officership' or does he also say, 'There's a need out there; you're passionate about me, you're passionate about the Army, then will you go?' Do we always need to wait till we hear some sort of audible voice of Jesus, or some sort of radical intervention into our day to day lives? Is the inherent need of people to find fullness of life in Jesus, and the broken and hurting of our communities enough to simply say, 'Here am I Lord, send me'?
