Updated: CALLING - A BIBLICAL PERSPECTIVE
“We spend more time at work – whether paid or unpaid – than any other waking activity.
If God cares about our lives, he must care about our work. If you understand God’s calling for you, it helps you live life more fully and follow Christ more ably every day of the week.
Following are the discussion notes from last weeks WCBN meeting
Calling Us to Life
We respond to His calling first, everything else follows.
Matthew 6:33 | Ephesians 2:10 | Colossians 3:17 | Matthew 22:36-40
Calling us to Work
From the beginning; He commands us to work, He gives us instructions on how to work, He provides examples of working.
Genesis 1:27-28 | Genesis 2:15 | Isaiah 65:21–23 | 2 Thessalonians 3: 6-10
Digging deeper to find your calling
Consider the needs of the World
What’s needed in the market place?
What’s needed by those who are part of your life today?
What can you do, that maybe others can’t so well?
Understand Your Skills and Gifts
Assess the skills and gifts you have
Connect the dots to what brings you joy
Seek input from the community around you
What are your Truest Desires
He’s placed desires in your heart, what are those? (you can feel it)
Where do you spend your time naturally
What are your passions
Accept freedom in Christ
Respond to his calling for your life. (Matthew 6:33)
Walk daily in his truth. (Matthew 22:36-40)
Believe he created you for good. (Ephesians 2:10)
