As Christians we are called to live out loud. God calls us all to different things, whether it be missions, being a pastor or just an average job and glorifying Him through it. We're called to be lights, we're called to love, we're called not to complain, we're called to work hard, we're called to have faith. We all have a calling. The lost souls in Africa are just as lost as the souls in your inner city. We're all called to me missionaries. However, we will fail, over and over again. But I know that in my life God uses my failures to create the need for something bigger than myself and that's Him. We must have faith. Winston Churchill wrote: "What we are required to do now is stand erect and look the world in the face and do our duty without fear or fervor." He will take care of us. We do what we have been called to and He is our strength to do it. God is using so many suffering Christians in other countries and we can't even pass out a tract without leaving our comfort zone. We can't fear the world and their thoughts of us. "You who fear the LORD, trust in the LORD! He is their help and their shield." - Psalm 15:11 As I mentioned before, we're called to love. We aren't called to love only if the person has a good attitude. We're called to love every single mother and every lost teenager. It doesn't matter who they are. I pray that God would break our hearts for what breaks His. And teach us the importance of life and teach us how not to waste what time He's given us.
We are called to be accurate. That means with purpose, not wasting time and diligently caring for those around us and their hearts.
