Through Another Lens

A WordPress.com site looking at Christian and non Christian news, culture etc, from an independent Christian viewpoint. Don't run after reading the word 'Christian'! Give it a chance, then run if you want ;-)

Sunday Thought (30/12/12): God’s Highest Calling

Am I clean yet?

Am I clean yet?

…whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31

I have heard it said that the highest calling a human being can have is to enter the Christian ministry and preach the Word of God (bit tricky for those who believe only men should be ministers). While I agree that this is indeed a very high calling, and therefore a calling which retains a high degree of both responsibility and accountability, I have always thought that the highest calling any individual can have, is quite simply to obey God’s instruction for that individual at any given time in that individual’s life.

If God requires a person to visit a sick relative, then that is the highest calling they have at that time.

If God requires that a person takes time out to spend with their family, then that is the highest calling they have at that time.

If God requires that a person washes a car and cleans it inside to make it look better, then that is the highest calling they have at that time.

If God requires that a person preach a sermon, then that is the highest calling they have at the time.

If God requires that a person take some time out from a busy schedule to play with the kids, then that is the highest calling they have at that time.

If God requires a person to support another person, even if no one else is supporting them and to stand with them will bring accusation and criticism, then that is the highest calling they have at that time.

It’s all a question of what God requires at any given time.

Thanks for reading.
