Thought of the Day !!

God, who calls you, is faithful; he will do this.
                                 1 Thessalonians 5:24 (NLT)

God calls each and every one of us.  He first calls us into a loving, self-giving relationship with Him through His Son Jesus.  And then He calls us to what I call secondary callings.  Some are called to preach.  Others are called to be missionaries.  Still others are called to care for others in various ways like being doctors, dependable workers, good stewards of other people's resources. 

Some of our callings may be vocational like those called to be nurses or social workers.  Other callings are short term like the calling placed upon one's heart to visit or pray for someone or stop and pick someone up on the side of the road. 

No matter what we're called to do though, God will be faithful to us to help us live out these callings.  He starts something special in our lives and helps us to complete whatever it is.  What has God called you to do lately?

In the love of Christ,
