Thought for the Day: Today is the promise of yesterday come home to roost
There are 3 essential steps to thinking like a PastorPreneur…the most important is the first step….”Grip God’s Calling on Your Life”. Gripping God’s call on your life is equally important as a business person and as a pastor. Here are some essential thoughts to help grip God’s calling on your life…
* Following God’s promise means you are partnering with the God of the universe to fulfill HIS purposes
* Author Os Guinness says that the calling of God is not just for pastors. “Calling,” wrote Guinness, “is the truth that God calls us to himself so decisively that everything we are, everything we do, and everything we have is invested with a special devotion and dynamism lived out as a response to his summons and service.”** (Os Guinness, The Call, (Word Publishing, Nashville, 1998, p. 4.). Business Leaders and Pastors alike are called by God for Kingdom work.
* Responding to God’s calling is an antidote to constantly trying to “prove yourself”. Calling anchors your soul in God’s calling will be specific to His character, the passions He implanted in your soul, and the context of your local community
Once God’s calling is clear in your mind and heart you will then be able to pursue the gifts that He has specifically entrusted to you and your team to accomplish His purposes n your local context!
Grip His calling on your life and you will become gripped by it!
