I am glad God speaks to me. What good is it if I do not listen? I believe that this is what is missing from our walk with God. He speaks and we do not listen. I want to share with you a thought that God has been dealing with me; hopefully you will be able to use it.
I want to be a better Christian, husband, father, soul winner, preacher and pastor. I have felt like that even though I know that these are my God given roles in life that I have not been able to find much direction with them. I want my life to count for eternity. I am tired of average preaching and average service. I want God’s blessing on my life.
I have been reading a book by Dr. Paul Chappell entitled, “Stewarding Life.” I would encourage you to read it too. I believe God has brought this book to my attention because I have been praying and asking God to help my life and my preaching to count for eternity. This book is not the Word of God, but there are Biblical principles that I have needed to apply to my life.
God has helped me to identify my God given roles in life. They are as follows: a Christian, husband, father, soul winner, preacher, and pastor. These are the things that God has given me to do for Him. This is my only time that I have to do something for eternity. I must make sure that what I do everyday helps me accomplish my God given roles.
What are your God given roles? This life, this time you have, is the only time you have to do something that will matter in eternity. Life is short. We cannot get it back. Don’t waste it on things that will not matter when we stand before God.
