Finding Your Calling

Description

A calling is when we are passionately using our God-given gifts in a way that pleases Him to build up and encourage the body of Christ—the church. Have you discovered your calling?

With this in mind, we constantly pray for you, that our God may count you worthy of his calling, and that by his power he may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith (2 Thessalonians 1:11, NIV).

Whether you are a big sports fan or not, it’s easy to get caught up in the action whenever a celebrated sports figure is on TV. Why? Athletes play at such a high level that it is an inspiration to watch them when they’re in “the zone.” What does it mean to be in the zone? Well, that’s when someone’s actions seem effortless, almost as if he could score at will.

We can all think of a bad day at work, but can you think of a time when you were in the zone—a moment when you were enjoying your task, and you were so caught up in your work that you lost track of time? What were you doing at that moment? What skills were you using? What was it that caused you to be passionate about the work? Understanding the answers to these questions will often help you better understand how to best use your time and talents—a calling.

A calling is when we are passionately using our God-given gifts in a way that pleases Him to build up and encourage the body of Christ—the church. We are not talking about your personality profile, but about those God-given gifts listed in the Bible, like teaching, wisdom, generosity, administration, and prayer, among many others. And that’s how we discover our true calling from God.

Have you discovered your calling? If not, pray and search for God’s will. Over time, He’ll reveal it to you.
