"The Place God is Calling You To"

July 16, 2022
By Pastor Bill Te Winkle

Galatians 6:9 “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

Frederick Buechner wrote, “The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”

I encourage to take reflect on these questions:

     1. What is the one thing I do in life that brings me deep gladness?

    Not necessarily happiness, but something like joy, something that  makes you so glad you want to sing.

     2. What can I do with that something that brings me deep gladness to meet a deep hunger in the world?

Not save the world by yourself. Not change the world by yourself. Just fill some deep hunger with that one thing that gives you deep gladness.

To be a disciple should not be a matter of hard, unrewarding work that makes you weary.

It is a matter of service, yes, but when we figure out God’s call on our lives it is done in places where your gladness finds its ultimate purpose.

That good work you do for Jesus is going to reap a harvest. Servants of God, be deeply glad!
