All of us are on a journey of some sort. Some people know what that journey is and some people don’t have a clue but, they go with the flow. Which category do you fall into?
If you are on a spiritual journey, then there is no doubt that God is leading you where he needs you but, you must be open to what it is He wants from you and you must be ready to reply “Here I am Lord” when He calls. Isaiah 6:8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?” “Here I am” I said; “Send me!”
Whether you know it or not, you have been chosen by God and you have been called by His Son Jesus Christ to go out and make disciples of all. Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.” But there is something else that God gave you and that is “free will.” It is completely up to you if you choose to hear and answer Him.
You might be asking yourself, “why me?” Why you? Because you were made for this. That was Gods plan all along and He sent His Son to prepare you for this. Just as in the story of The Vine and the Branches, Jesus has been pruning you, getting rid of the junk so that you can go out and bear good fruit. John 15:16 It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain.
So go out, be strong and have courage because God is with you, Jesus is with you and they are counting on you to go out and be that living example for others, to be that light shining in a dark world, to be a disciple. Joshua 1:9 Be strong and steadfast! Do not fear or be dismayed, for the Lord, your God, is with you wherever you go.
May God continue to bless you and all that you do for His Kingdom! Viva Cristo Rey!
