This past Sunday, March 21, our pastor delivered an awesome message on knowing what our place is in the body of Christ. Today, the Monday afterwards, I find myself still thinking about his message. The question posed was, "am I a priest or a king"? Will I find myself primarily ministering to people or will I find myself in a business setting, making money to support those in our body who are ministering? I found it interesting that my husband and I both felt very strongly about our callings. I, between my writing, singing, hospitality and cooking find myself strongly on the priestly side of things. My husband feels his calling is in business. Isn't it amazing how God brings things, or people together to compliment one another? I will have copies of my novel in hand sometime this fall. My husband is excited about the marketing aspect and discovering all the possibilities and avenues to make this novel and subsequent novels a success.
Isn't it just like God to give us all the tools we need to do what He has called us to do? What has God called you to do? What are your natural talents? What do you enjoy doing? How can you further the Kingdom of God by using your gifts and talents to glorify Him? Take a moment today to think about your purpose.
