Have y’all ever really thought about that? Growing up in a church, I’ve always heard about each of us being called to serve, but have never thought about what that actually looks like. I mean, I figured that some people were called to share the gospel through paintings or drawings since that’s what they’re good at, others through music because they have voices of angels or however else you might describe incredible vocals. While I’m still figuring out my niche, I have allowed myself to believe that I’m constantly not ready to share the gospel, or talk about Jesus in my daily life. It’s crazy though, how one statement can change how you view everything.
“WE’RE ALL CALLED.”
We are ALL called to share the unconditional love that is Christ. We’re all called to do just that, maybe in different ways, but we are ALL called. Each of us have a purpose here on this earth, and in our lives. Like I said, I grew up in church. I knew all of this. But it wasn’t until today that I’ve started to seek out what it really means to be a Christ Follower. I was asked that today by a friend who’s loving Christ and people..well, she asked that question rhetorically, but it got me thinking. I see these people who are so in love with Christ, who are unashamed of Him, and I want that. I wonder about how that feels. But why do I have to wonder? Why can’t I just go get Him, go do it? Honestly, I don’t feel ready or holy enough and that’s probably utter nonsense because I’ll never be ready for that unconditional love of Christ. I’ll never be holy enough or worthy enough. That’s why I’m needing Christ. To be honest, I’m probably broken up about something 90% of the time because I’m a thinker. I’ll think about everything and anything on such deep levels that it’ll affect my mood. Sometimes, I’ll struggle with things that’ll make me question my faith in God. Truthfully, I’ll question if there’s even a God, if Christ is real, or if he even care about one girl out of the billions of people on this earth. But, you know what? Maybe, there has to be. It seems so rare that two different individuals from two entirely different cultures with two completely different backgrounds will experience the same phenomenon. Both of these individuals were told by people living in different geographical locations that they’d dreamt about a man in white telling them that someone was going to come and tell them about Him, about the gospel. I don’t know about you, but if I had a dream about someone coming to my door, then seeing that person at my door later in the week, I’d be freaking the heck out. It seems that out of the many spiritual encounters I’ve heard about, that stands out to me the most. Well, it makes number 2 on my list, actually. I don’t think that I’m allowed to say what the number 1 encounter is… sorry! Well, if I get permission then I will definitely share that in a later post.
With all this, I think I really need to emphasize that I don’t have everything figured out. I’d like to, that’s how I’m comfortable, but I don’t. All I’m saying is that we’re all living for a purpose, and it’s to share this love with others. This love looks different for everyone, I’m sure. It might be rejected, and it might not, but is that the worst thing that can happen? We’re all going to die one day. Though I’m still figuring this out, I’d rather live a life with this God to have an eternity with Him when I die than living like there is no Christ just to be proven wrong on the day of Judgement.
