The vocation of every Christian

Copyright 2015 by R.A. Robbins

 

“The vocation of every Christian is to live as a follower of Jesus today.

In every aspect of life,

in small and large acts,

with family, neighbors and enemies,

we are to seek to live out the grace and truth of Jesus.

This is our vocation, our calling.

Today.”

 

― Mark Labberton, Called: The Crisis and Promise of Following Jesus Today

A Gift to be Received

“Today I understand vocation quite differently-
not as a goal to be achieved but as a gift to be received. Discovering vocation does not mean scrambling toward some prize just beyond my reach but accepting the treasure of true self I already possess. Vocation does not come from a voice “out there” calling me to become something I am not. It comes from a voice “in here” calling me to be the person I was born to be, to fulfill the original selfhood given me at birth by God,”

“Everybody has a vocation to some form of life-work. However, behind that call (and deeper than any call), everybody has a vocation to be a person to be fully and deeply human in Christ Jesus.”
