Your Assignment

Given July 13, 2006
(Click on the title above for the audio version.)

"Good morning, Mr. Phelps. Your mission, should you choose to accept it..." Do you remember this quote from the Mission Impossible TV show? The agent would listen to this recording, get his instructions, then go out and save the day.

The DVD series we've been watching on Wednesday nights at church talked, this week, about believers being "living stones". And how each one of us has a place in the "temple" made by these stones. It was great! During my prayer time this morning, I was reminded of that and the fact that we all have been given an assignment. "...for many be called, but few chosen. Matthew 20:16", and " Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, 2 Timothy 1:9".

All of us who have been saved has a calling, an assignment, a purpose in the Kingdom of God. I think God is saying to us, (I know He's saying it to me), "Bill, your assignment today, should you choose to accept it, is to live a Godly life, witness for Me, and help anyone who needs it." But it's important to notice the part, "should you choose to accept it". Matthew said many are called but few are chosen. I think WE do the choosing! We have a free will to accept God's assignment or not.

I pray each morning, "God, how may I serve you today?" And most days He'll send someone my way, which is my assignment for that day. Lord, forgive me for the times I've missed it. "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. John 15:16". Seems like a pretty good deal to me!
