“God did not call me to do that.”
“Not everyone is called to be missionaries, so give some money and help these people tell the world about God.”
The only problem? Jesus did not make distinctions when He said, “Go into the world and preach the gospel.” It’s not just for a certain group of people.
He never said, “If you feel called” He said “Go.” That applies to everyone.
Don’t feel the calling? I bet Shadrach didn’t feel like being thrown into a fire. I bet Corrie Ten Boom didn’t feel like spreading the love of Jesus in a concentration camp. I bet martyrs didn’t feel like being tortured. JESUS DIDNT FEEL LIKE DYING ON THE CROSS!
Are you a Mom? Be so wildly in love with Jesus that your children see Him as the very air you breathe! Be so beyond patient that others notice something different about you and have to comment. And then answer!
Are you a husband? Love you wife like Christ loves the church. Daily die to her!
Do you drive? Forget about road rage. Do you buy coffee? Grab a cup for someone else. Invite a homeless person to church. Stop and chat with a lonely person.
Be so crazy in love with the King of kings that you are a fool in love. Live like this is not your home!
And when you screw up, BECAUSE YOU WILL, the absolute biggest way that you can stand out among the crowd is to ASK FOR FORGIVENESS!
Ask for forgiveness and FORGIVE, that is what I am called to do. What better way to preach the gospel?
