A Call to Stand Apart


Young Adult’s Encounter with Ellen White ... on Careers

In elementary school my ambition was to be a player on a professional basketball, football, or baseball team. As time went on, I realized that that goal was a dream and not reality. AC 98.3

When, as a teenager, I began to realize how much God loves me as an individual, I wanted to know Him as a personal friend. I tried to read spiritual books, but found them boring. A couple years later I again picked up Steps to Christ. And this time it came alive. God began speaking directly to my heart, and I wanted to share how much Jesus means to me. AC 98.4

I believe that God used Ellen White to inspire me to grow in a love relationship with Christ and to commit my career to Him. I realized that working to save people for Jesus’ kingdom means that God could help me to trust Him and love Him more deeply. AC 98.5

Right now I am a student gospel literature evangelist, but I want to be a witness, no matter what line of work I ultimately choose. Only doing something to help others will truly make me happy. I don’t want to get caught up in the rat race, because the love of money will lead me to hell. AC 98.6

Reading about Jesus in The Desire of Ages has helped me decide to dedicate my life to ministry and evangelism. AC 98.7

I read a Help Wanted sign into (Luke 10:2): “The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.” (NKJV). God is urgently calling young people to work for Him today! I choose to go and gather precious persons for God’s harvest. AC 98.8
