LIFE ASSESSMENT NUMBER 10: LIFE CALLING AND PASSION FOR YOU INDIVIDUALLY
* "Calling" is a term tossed around like another religious term, for which many Christians could not give a clear definition.
* Many people say they feel called, but calling is not based upon a feeling.
* Most Christians are not planning their lives around God's unique design for them.
* Most Christians have no idea what their spiritual gift is, and many churches do not emphasize them.
BUILDING BLOCK NUMBER 10: HAVE A CONFIRMED DIVINE DIRECTIVE OF GOD AND VISION FOR YOUR LIFE, IN ACCORDANCE WITH YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTEDNESS.
This goes beyond your occupation. Each believer has at least one spiritual gift that needs to be identified and utilized. You can then contribute to the growth and proper functioning of the Body of Christ. Let God make you into a person of significance for His glory. It means living life intentionally, with vision and purpose.
