What in the World Are You Doing?

Listen to podcast audio:

While we may take a narrow view on the topic of gifts and calling, God's perspective is often different. That is important because we must be able to recognize what God's calling looks like in our lives. This week, Keith Holloway offers a reminder that every believer has work to do.

Key Points from the Podcast

  • Moses, as the leader of the people of Israel, was given specific instructions from God for the building of the tabernacle and all its elements. Those instructions went beyond his own abilities, so he was told to delegate authority to those whom God had given the required skills.

  • Just as God called Bezalel by name and gave him skills and abilities for a specific task, he has called you and gifted you for a particular assignment.

  • Bezalel was not in the limelight, as Moses and Aaron were, but ‘in the shadow of God’ as his name means, but his God-given skills were needed to help fulfill the ministry of Moses and Aaron. You, too, may be in the shadows, but your giftings are needed to assist those at the forefront.

  • The body of Christ is made of many parts with various functions that all have a part to play for the body to function properly.

  • God will supply everything you need to fulfill his calling for your life. You don’t need to depend on your natural skills and abilities.

  • Is what you’re doing today an assignment from God? Are you fulfilling your role in the body of Christ? Is what you’re doing connected to the kingdom of God?

  • Whatever you do, do it for the glory of God.
