WHAT IS YOUR PROFESSION?Acts 20:24
You wonder what’s up when multi-million recording artists end up overdosed on prescription drugs. Or when footballers who have graced pitches around the world finish their lives drowning in alcohol. Or when stars of the silver screen bring their lives to an end in hotel rooms. It seems you can have it all and at the same time have nothing. Sometimes the things we desire most (fame, money, power) are the things most deadly for us. If you want to make your life count, don’t bank your chips at the celebrity roulette table – sign it all over to God instead. Root your life in Him.
D. L. Moody once said, ‘Let God have your life; He can do more with it than you can.’ Ephesians 1:11 goes further: ‘It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for. Long before we first heard of Christ and got our hopes up, He had His eye on us, had designs on us for glorious living, part of the overall purpose He is working out in everything and everyone.’ (TM) That’s the big picture. And it is a big picture!
As God’s children, we get to build for God’s Kingdom. God promises that our brick, whatever it is, will be part of the purpose He is working out in everything and everyone, in all of history. It may not be fame in the world’s eyes, but you will truly have success, and treasure in God. So focus on the only profession truly worth giving your attention to - go to Christ, and find out who you are and what you are living for.
