What's Your Calling?

And He said to me: " are not sent to a people of unfamiliar speech and of hard language, but to the house of Israel." (Isaiah 3:5)

Ezekiel has long been one of my favorite books of the Bible. I love God's call on Ezekiel's life - the fact that he was sent not to an unknown or unfamiliar people, but to his people, the "house of Israel"... the children of God.

Today, the American Church places so much emphasis on "foreign missions," on reaching people in Africa or India or Indonesia that we forget our neighbors next door need Jesus just as much as anyone else!

While everyone is called to share a testimony of Jesus, not everyone is called to do so with people of "unfamiliar speech." Some of us, myself included, are also called to share with the children of God... the Church.

What's your calling? Don't think because you haven't felt God's pull to the mission field or the pulpit that you don't have one! You do. Ask the Lord to direct you as He directed Ezekiel - to those He wants you to share His word with today.
