What is Your Purpose?
As Christians we could answer that we’re here to seek God, worship Him, share Him with others, and experience everything He has freely given to us.
But this is also a blog about Christian business and for Christian entrepreneurs.
He also wants to give you a plan and specific purpose only you can accomplish.
You are called to be a leader wherever you are.
In some Christian circles, they only recognize people who are called to a full-time ministry position or missionary ministry.
In their minds, you’re not working for God if it doesn’t take place in a church.
This has held MILLIONS of Christians back from being what God has created them to be.
If you’re reading this, then God has likely called you be an entrepreneur.
It’s a high calling and one you should appreciate and respect. You’re no less called than someone who serves in a church ministry setting.
You can be a light set on a hill that cannot be hid.
When you go through the book of Acts you’ll see the majority of ministry didn’t occur in separate building. It took place in the marketplace.
You can change our world.
What if every Christian accepted their calling…and really began to work in the positions God has set them?
We’d live in a very different world.
“But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.”
1 Cor 12:18-21, KJV
Whether you’re called by God to be a pastor, to work in a factory, or to run your own business, you’re still called to influence those around you.
And NONE of us should look down on others for the position we’re called to.
I hate to say this, but back when I attended Bible College there was a serious attitude that there were levels of calling. Sure everyone had a purpose, but some people’s purpose was much more important than others.
I even heard this exact line, “If someone isn’t in full-time ministry, then their calling isn’t worth much.”
By their standard, even Paul the Apostle’s calling wasn’t worth much since he was also a tentmaker who supported himself.
Anytime we get into comparing ourselves with each other, we’re going to miss it.
You are here for a purpose.
No one else is like you.
No one else can influence who you can influence.
And you’re so valuable that Jesus would have suffered in your place…even if you were the only one.
Don’t you owe it to yourself and to Him to take your place and become who you are called to be.
Because of the purpose of this blog, many of you are called to be entrepreneurs.
You’re called to go out in the marketplace and change things.
You’re called to be a light in this dark world.
And no matter what difficulties come…and what stands in your way…you need to keep moving forward.
I don’t know what God has planned for you, but here’s a little hint. It’s bigger than you can ever accomplish on your own.
Why would God ever give you a plan for your life that you could do without him?
It’s too big for you alone. You’ll have to call on Him and have help from others to accomplish it.
