Blog: Discovering Your True Calling Bob Larranaga "Jesus turning, and seeing them following him, saith to them: What seek you?" (John 1: 35-39) What do you seek? If Jesus put the same question to you, how would you answer Him? What are your goals, your dreams? If the past didn't exist and you didn't know who you were, what would you do differently in the coming year? The question can be a troublesome one; especially, if you have the uneasy feeling that you have been put on this earth to accomplish some mission, which remains a mystery to you. Yet, the Bible tells us, and our own experience confirms, that those who discover their true calling in life accomplish great things in God's name.
Jesus said His mission was to bring light to the darkness. It was a simple and direct mission statement, and as a result, He never wavered. He could have done anything. He could have raised an army or built cathedrals. He could have written books, founded a school or sat in judgment on all of us. But, instead, He brought light to the darkness.
It's worth noting what Christ didn't do. He didn't say that His mission was to be a biblical scholar. That may have been one of His roles in life, but it wasn't His mission. Nor did He say that His mission was to be a great preacher. That may have been His job, but it wasn't His mission. He was very focused on His goal.
A mission involves an element of risk. It calls us out of ourselves. It requires a leap of faith. If you knew you couldn't fail, what would you attempt to do in the name of Christ? Read other Recent Posts on stewardship and add a comment.
