Summary: The majority of us will not proclaim the good news of Christ to tens of thousands of people standing on a stage in a huge venue. But I tell you the truth: faithfully doing what God has called you to do can change the world.
I can confidently say that the majority of us will not have a national platform. And if some of us do have a touch more influence, I will also confidently say that many of us will likely just want more, right?
In this day and age of influencers, followers and more, there is a skewed measuring stick for determining if we are doing what we are supposed to do. The world has a weird sense of what it means to be faithful to our calling and how success is measured. There can be an odd tension between what we WANT a life of impact to look like and how the calling from God REALLY is going to play out.
The majority of us will not proclaim the good news of Christ to tens of thousands of people standing on a stage in a huge venue. Most of us have been called to stay home and do that which is ours to do. You may be called to serve with six kids and have one singular and faithful volunteer at your side every week. That’s not a national platform. But I tell you the truth: faithfully doing what God has called you to do can change the world.
Are you willing to do unseen and uncelebrated things? Are you willing to spend your life developing a few people in your hidden neck of the woods? Will you do what YOU are supposed to do, leaving others to fulfill their calling? Are you faithfully serving where God has placed you, or are you wishing and even pining for a bigger platform? Do you need to take a moment and accept the place and space God has placed and planted you.
Take a moment and ask God for His grace so you can accept your calling, your place and your space in the kingdom.
