Here’s a question that every Christian must answer: What is God’s calling on your life?
Some people answer that question with a statement about full-time ministry. Others refer to volunteer roles they play at church or work done on short term mission trips. Others answer that God has called them to a secular vocation.
Now let’s try a second question: What do you want to do with your life?
Hopefully we answer the second question with our answers to the first question.
What has God called you to? Do you do whatever you do because that is what interests you or because you have a deep sense of conviction about what you are to do with your life?
Before I became a missionary broadcaster I worked in radio in the US. Though I was on the air as a DJ I had a particular talent and love for commercial production—making radio commercials for clients. Becoming a missionary broadcaster never occurred to me. I was only interested in pursuing my profession in the US. In fact, in my early days I had a couple of networks that were interested in my work. I was looking forward to a long and profitable radio career. But that all changed one day when I sat down in church to listen to a guest speaker talk about what God was doing in Lebanon through Christian radio.
