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.
