Scripture: 1 Corinthians 7:17-24
The typical person finds their identity in their job or career. But most companies no longer offer lifetime security. The majority of workers in our millennial generation is expected to only stay in a job for less than three years. People are looking for fulfillment, purpose, and real meaning in their jobs but are more and more dissatisfied. Even seeking happiness in personal relationships is not satisfying if we only stay while we feel the other person makes me happy.
Thanks for depressing us, Pastor Mark!
The good news from today’s passage in 1 Corinthians 7, is that our calling in life comes from God and the one who created you will not only help you find purpose, but he promises abundant joy when we do it His way.
God Assigns and Calls you
Lead the life God assigned to you and called you to.
Colossians 3:17, 23-24
Reminder: Bought with a price
Command: Don’t give up your freedom.
Be content with God.
Have you responded to God’s call?
Are your vertical and horizontal callings in line?
Are there idols in your life? Things that enslave you?
Are you content with where God has you and what He has called you to do?
