What’s Your Calling? (Part 4)

As you explore your calling, How is God speaking to you?

Where does God’s Purpose and your Passion come together?

Is there a difference between being called to be a fisher of men and one who feeds sheep?

A focused metaphor will help clarify your calling.

What is the metaphor of your call?

The life of the speaker has greater weight in determining whether he is obediently heard than any grandness of eloquence.

What’s Your Calling? (Part 3)

Our Passion + God’s Purposes= Calling

  • Are there times when it seems like life beats your calling out of you?
  • What do you do to refocus on what is most important?
  • Where are you at now. . . where do you need to be?

Today, take some time to reflect.  Ask God to clarify your call and bring together His purpose and your passion again!!!

I’ve discovered that it’s not hard to be biblical if you don’t care about being contemporary. And it’s certainly not hard to be contemporary if you don’t care about being biblical. Being biblical and contemporary– that’s the art of Christian communication.
