Pastors are called by God for their whole life to be devoted to their own personal flock, but that doesn’t mean they should be the only ones working for the bettering of God’s kingdom. We all have a part to play.
God calls all of us who know him to put “the kindgom first” and to “speak unto all nations”. You may not be called to speak behind a pulpit – not everyone has that talent – but you are called to further God in your daily life.
These days that has become so easy. If you know how to write, begin a blog or write a book. If your into video games or animation, make enjoyable clean videos for people to watch. If your a compassionate person, volunteer or just be a listening ear. It might seem hard at first to find a way to work our spiritual job into our life job, but it’s important to do so.
No matter how old or how young you are you are called to show God in your world!
1 Timothy 4:12-16, “Let no one despise or think less of you because of your youth, but be an example (pattern) for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity. Till I come, devote yourself to [public and private] reading, to exhortation (preaching and personal appeals), and to teaching and instilling doctrine. Do not neglect the gift which is in you, [the special inward endowment] which was directly imparted to you [by the Holy Spirit] by prophetic utterance when the elders laid hands upon you. Practice and cultivate and meditate upon these duties; throw yourself wholly into them [as your ministry], so that your progress may be evident to everybody. Look well to yourself [to your own personality] and to [your] teaching; persevere in these things [hold to them], for by doing so you will save both yourself and those who hear you.”
There is always something you can do to influence those around you, will you influence them for God?
