This is Kathy Wolfe. Welcome to this morning’s devotional.
Today we are centering on A Call to Ministry and our scripture is from Luke 4:14-21. This scripture tells of Jesus’ return to Galilee after he has been baptized and spent 40 days is the wilderness. He tells the people in the synagogue that he has been sent by God to preach the good news to the people.
The thing that is important to know is that Jesus always knew what his ministry was. He knew that he was the Son of God.
We don’t always know what our call is. Is it the sudden urge to call someone that you haven’t spoken to in a while? Is a request to do something completely out of our comfort zone? We have to be open to learning what our mission is and to act on those promptings.
So, as we go into next week let us consider the Mission Prayer -
God, where will your Spirit lead today? Help me be fully awake and ready to respond. Grant me the courage to risk something new and become a blessing of your love and peace. Amen.
May we go forth in love, ready to respond is my prayer.
