The Call

So, what is it Jesus wants to be doing?

What is it He is calling you to do in your life?

In some ways, those should be the only questions we are asking ourselves everyday. It should be an everyday type of question, so we really know the will of God. This is just my thought. I have been wrestling with these ideas and themes for awhile now. I don't have the answers for everyone, maybe even for anyone, because it is hard enough at times to determine what God wants for us on an individual level. Remember it is about abiding in Christ as we surrender ourselves to Him.

When we can answer these questions and then with passion and commitment serve Him, doing it within family, with friends, at work, school, in the community . . . imagine how much people will see what we are doing and what the deep abiding passion is all about, it's about Jesus, nothing more, nothing less. That sets us free, and ultimately sets others free.

You see, life in Christ is supposed to be about setting us free, you know that scripture, "The truth will set you free" (John 8:32). Also "perfect love casts out fear" (1 John 4:18); so we should have no fear when it comes to the love of Christ, it's perfect, or as the Greek translates it, it is complete, finished and total agape love. The greatest love of all.

So, friends, what is God calling you to do? What are you to be in life?

As the Nike slogan goes, "just do it" and you will not be sorry.
