There’s just something about doing the work God called us to do.
“But what if I am not called to ministry?” “What if I don’t know my call?”
I can already hear you asking those and a million other questions like it. Here’s the thing—God has called you to take care of the sick. To give to the poor. To make peace. To honor your parents. To love without limits.
To love the Lord your God with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength. And to love your neighbor just the same. All of the above are “God’s work.” This is our truest source of joy in this life. Get to it. Amen.

FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT CHALLENGE
For the duration of our sermon series, we are offering daily prompts for applying the wisdom from the scriptures to our everyday lives. Each week focuses on how we can encourage those around us and bear fruit! This week we are focusing on the fruit of joy.
“Joy and woe are woven fine, a clothing for the soul divine; Under every grief and pine runs a joy with silken twine. It is right it should be so; Man was made for joy and woe; And when this we rightly know, safely through the world we go.”
-William Blake’s “Auguries of Innocence”
