You must respond to God's call on your life to serve in ministry.

Many people are aware that God has called them to the ministry.

Prophecies, dreams, pastors, earnest passion, and other means can reveal this.

Many more people continue to hear God's voice calling them into ministry.

You must understand that whoever takes on God's work is doing a good job.

HEB 3:15

As it is said, "Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion."

There are so many that do not obey the call of God, they rebel against the authority of God, because when you don't obey you rebel.

When God calls you, you must respond to the calling and act as He want you to do.

Jer 1:7

But the LORD said to me: "Do not say, "I am a youth,' For you shall go to all to whom I send you, And whatever I command you, you shall speak. 

For there are many people who refuse to go or respond to the call because they believe they are too young.

Many young people who are called to ministry believe they are too young and incapable of doing anything for God.

Remember that God calls or chooses whomever He wants, and when He chooses you, it means that He has made some heavenly deposits in you, that you will bring people closer to Him or souls for Him. It makes no difference your age or where you come from. When you do not respond, you waste the resources that have been deposited in you.

God becomes angry with you because you have decided to waste the resources that could have been given to someone else. "To whom much is given, much is expected".

Others don't respond or obey because they are afraid of where God is sending them.

When God calls you, the direction He puts you is the most important thing and people lose this because they even take it mean.

Jonah 4:2

And he prayed to the LORD and said, "O LORD, is not this what I said when I was yet in my country? That is why I made haste to flee to Tarshish; for I knew that you are a gracious God and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and relenting from disaster. 

Others believe that God should rather punish people for their sins than send others to preach to them on a daily basis.

Some believe it is a waste of time to spend every day preaching to others while the majority of people sin.

Jonah was tired and angry of God's grace and mercy upon sinners.

You must obey the calling of God, like God said unto Jeremiah "don't say I am young" this means your current situation does not guarantee where He is sending you to, He take care of you and yours is to obey or respond.

2 Timothy 4:2

[2]Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine.

You must carry out the ministry. As the Apostle Paul says, preach the gospel in all seasons.

You are not required to fold your arms.

Preach the gospel or do whatever else has been given to you for the glory of God.

Do not be sluggish, do not put off, do not hesitate, do what has been entrusted to you, for every work will be judged before our Lord God Almighty.

 As you do the ministry, you must also think of expanding that which you  are called to do. Win more souls for Christ, increase your ability in the Lord and your contribution towards the kingdom business.

John 15:16

[16]Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
