We all have an extraordinary calling on our lives. Our very first calling as a Christian is to be His Ambassador. Which means we are to represent God in all we say and do. What every man and woman need to understand is God wants to make His invisible presence visible through them. This doesn’t require being in an official, professional full- time ministry role. What God wants us to do is throughout our day to day relationships and tasks; we are to reflect His glory and let His redeeming grace work through us for others.
Or in other words, as Paul David Tripp says, we are to be instruments in the Redeemer’s hands. God created us to serve and equip others. Still, our hearts get distracted, and we get blinded from comparing or chained to the pity pole, and end up being great consumers of information, and inspiration, but not an instrument of transformation.
Understand we all need equipping Biblically on how to live life in today’s world. We need equipping to know how to love others, how to navigate through trials, raise our children, serve our church, and be all God intended for us to be.
When you are willing to make time for God, in my experience, He will make sure you still get done what you need to get done, and I also believe He somehow stops the clock. Don’t let the busyness of your day keep you from the God who cares about your day.
As a reminder, God said in Revelation 3:20, “Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will go in and eat with him, and he with me.” His words here are not an invitation for unbelievers; it was a promise spoken to those believers in the struggling churches of Asia. Jesus is saying He is here with us, always, He is just outside the door knocking, and waiting for us to open the door to Him. Whatever the need, whether it be further commitment to Him, thirst for His Word, perseverance, or strength; He is at the door.
