If you hear the phone ring, would you stop to answer it or let it go to voicemail? What if you knew who it was from and you love hearing that person's voice? Shouldn't we hear the same about Jesus?
The Lord has put it in my heart to write on callings. I'm not talking about professions or jobs. I am talking about becoming active in politics. If you have seen my posts on Facebook, you know I'm vocal about politic and what I believe. I'm passionate about both. I love Jesus and I want to please him in anyway possible. I know you do too. So I want to ask you, "are you answering his call on your life?"
In the book of Haggai, he tells his people to consider their ways. They neglected God's temple and only concerned themselves with their own lives.
"In the second year of Darius the king, in the sixth month, in the first day of the month, came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet unto Zerubbabel the son of Shealtiel, governor of Judah, and to Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest, saying,2 Thus speaketh the Lord of hosts, saying, This people say, The time is not come, the time that the Lord's house should be built.
3 Then came the word of the Lord by Haggai the prophet, saying,
4 Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your cieled houses, and this house lie waste?
5 Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways.
6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; ye eat, but ye have not enough; ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; ye clothe you, but there is none warm; and he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
7 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; Consider your ways."
If many Christians would answer the call, our nation would be better off. I'm not saying you need to run for congress or mayor or governor. There are many ways we could get active in politics. You just need to pray and ask God what he wants you to do. I am saying is stop making excuses and start answering the call God has on your life.
