📖1 Peter 4:7-11
Who hath saved us & called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose & grace which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began. 2Tim. 1:9
After God has called you to salvation, the next call is to join Him in redeeming the world. Now, you must note that He doesn’t only call people from the altar but
from all works of life to serve Him in various capacities. For example, He can call some to join Him in the technology field bcs He wants to use technology
as a tool to reach the unsaved. His agenda goes beyond the altar into the everyday lives of people.
God is not a Sunday to Sunday God. He is God every single day & so He is using people to accomplish His agenda daily.
Pastors don’t reserve the right to be used by God. As far as you are born again – whether you are in business, arts & entertainment or even in fashion, God can use you in that field to fulfil His will. He said in Col. 3:17: “& whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God & the Father by him. Thus, whatever it is that you do, make sure you are doing it in the name of Jesus Christ.
When you do something in the name of someone, it means it is not you but the fellow being represented that’s doing it.
In other words, when God calls you to an industry, you are not to go there to do your will but His. His agenda is already set; all He does when He calls you is to
join Him in bringing it to pass. Thus, when you feel Him pulling you to work for Him in a certain field of life, then you must ask Him what His agenda is concerning that thing you are to do. Everything you do must be in line with His agenda. you should also note that you are His representative there & you must not do what He Himself wouldn’t. As a reward for answering the call to join Him in His redemptive work in the world, God makes sure that all things work together for your good. & we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. Rom 8:28 Once you are called according to His purpose & you answer that call, all things will begin to work together for your good.
🔰GOD CALLED YOU TO THAT INDUSTRY TO DO HIS WILL; REPRESENT HIM WELL.
