“Calling ten of his servants, he gave them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Engage in business until I come.’”
The great evangelist and preacher John Wesley once said, “Do all the good you can, to as many people as you can, for as long as you can.” Now more than ever, we as Christians need to heed Wesley’s words and do good to others as well as each other.
Believers in this generation should be in the business of encouraging and equipping one another for ministry to those in need. In light of that truth, I have a question for you today: What is God calling you to do?
I believe that Christ calls every believer to something great and something specific, which makes our assignment to discover what He has called and gifted us to do.
If you aren’t sure what your gifts and calling are, start by serving Christ right where you are, and ask Him to make it clear what it is that you can do most effectively for His kingdom. He will make it clear to you!
But getting started means you need to listen for God’s call—which often comes as a quiet voice amid all of the loud distractions that the world throws your way.
God has given you talents and abilities to serve Him. Like the servants to whom the master entrusted his wealth, let’s get on with the Lord’s business until He returns!
GOD CALLS EVERY BELIEVER TO DO SOMETHING UNIQUE AND WONDERFUL FOR HIM.
