A Divine Calling

Do you feel you have a purpose in life? I don’t mean being a wife, sister, mother, husband, brother, etc. I’m referring to a purpose for being alive today; the reason you were born and brought to this moment in time. A divine calling.

As a Christian, you soon learn that we’re not just saved, and then we go to heaven. God doesn’t want that. He created us. He has a job for those who follow Him. And don’t mistake this calling as a religious activity or holy hobby.

Our sole mission in life as Christians is to go, spread the news of salvation. Don’t leave it up to the pastors or missionaries. It’s for all of us Christians. It’s our duty to tell others about Jesus, how He died so we can live.

And whatever or however you convey this message, don’t preach to them.

It’s simple. Tell them your story. Reveal the unexplainable truth of how Jesus can take a broken, hurt, damaged, addicted person and make them whole, new, loving, joyful and beautiful.

That’s what happened to me. It took many years of my stubborn will getting in the way, for me to realize that all I needed was Jesus in my life.

Ask God today what He called you to be; where He called you to go.

Matthew 6:33-34 – “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”
