Are you living out your call? We live in a world that is constantly on the move. Things change so rapidly that we hardly notice.

We don’t notice because we are too busy trying to maneuver around ourselves, and by the time we notice, time has gotten away from us and things look different. The one thing that should never change is how we as Christians should live out our faith. We all need to grow spiritually and do that daily by allowing the Holy Spirit to lead us while helping to lead others to a healthy relationship with God. 

How do we do that? It’s not complicated. It starts with receiving Christ as our Lord and Savior and allowing God to use us. We all have a vocation in life that will require spiritual growth and personal commitment. 

As we grow in Christ, everything must begin and end with prayer. An active prayer life will help us seek out God’s will, as we will need to get into the Word of God and let the Word get into us. If we do this we will have ample opportunities to share our faith with others. 

Your life is not to be consumed with words but also to let your light shine. That will speak volumes about your Christianity, and that is the beauty of the Christian faith;  you and I are part of the story! 

No matter who you are or where you are from, we have all fallen short of God’s glory, and yet, my brothers and sisters, we have a story to tell and a story to share. The most impactful way to share our stories with others is to live out our call. 

Every Christian has the opportunity to share their story. It’s not about how you started; it’s all about God and living out your call.
