If you are a Christian, you have also been called to be a missionary.  The life you live is the life God has given you… and the specific locations in which you live that life are the locations to which He has sent you.  Everything you do… everyone you meet… every opportunity you have… is part of your specific vocation – you “calling” assigned by God.

That calling should give special meaning to every meeting you attend, every group project you’re a part of, every chemistry lab, every workshop, every classroom.  In our vocation, we build relationships.  In our vocation, we love, serve, and bless people.  We pray for those around us.

God provides our calling… and He also supports us in it.  If you are still in school, God is providing for your vocation through tax dollars and government-provided schools.  If you are in college, God is providing for your vocation through scholarships and part-time jobs.  If you are in the workplace, God is providing for your vocation through your paycheck.  Regardless of the name on the paycheck, God is routing His resources to you through them… so that you can be paid full-time ministry where He has sent you.

You have possibly assumed you are going to school or working your job so you can afford to pay for the expenses of living life.  You are actually going to school or working your job as a way to remain on your mission field!

Look around on your mission field; what do you think God would have you do today?
