One of the questions I hear over and over again is, “What am I supposed to do with my life now that I’m a Christian? Now that I follow Christ, what is there for me to do that makes a difference in the world, and what has God placed in me that lets me know that He has a plan for my life here on this earth?”
So today we talk about three important concepts that every follower of Jesus needs to understand, embrace, and master: the idea of calling, the idea of the measure of faith, and gift mix.
Each one of these ideas will help you understand where you fit, your place in God’s plan, and why it’s significant that you excel, and grow, and mature and become healthy; a maker of better culture, a contributor to help God make of this world what He has in mind as He’s redeeming, reconciling, and restoring to Himself through Jesus Christ.
No Christian can rightfully say that they are a mistake, and that they don’t matter. Each one of us has a calling, we have supernatural spiritual gifts, and a measure of faith that allows us to accomplish the life God intended.
As you listen today, let me know what you think. Do you have three spiritual gifts or more? And if you do, what are they? Do you agree that when you operate out of anything but your top gift that you can only be good, not great; and only be drained, not super-charged?
