How do I distinguish God’s calling on my life?

Pastor J.D. explains the reality that all Christians are called to do whatever they’re gifted in for the glory of God, wherever God places them.

A glimpse inside this episode:

  • I was looking for a mystical call from God like looking for God’s will in my Cheerios.
    • You don’t need a voice when you have a verse.
  • Every believer has spiritual gifts and a spiritual calling.
    • Spiritual gift tests (why I’m skeptical)
    • A spiritual gift is: (1) an unusual effectiveness in a responsibility given to all believers.
    • (2) We discover our spiritual gifts as we actively pursue those responsibilities.
    • (3) Ability / Affinity / Need or Affirmation (where do these things overlap?)
    • Nehemiah 2:12
  • Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe gifts to the children
  • Whatever you’re good at, do it well for the glory of God, and do it somewhere strategic for the mission of God.
    • The question is no longer if you’re called; it’s only where and how.
