“Called to the Ministry” – a quote

April 28, 2011


I saw this quote on a forum I am apart of and had to pass it on to you:

There are jobs that a Christian ought not to take because they serve purposes opposed to the kingdom; there are jobs that he ought not to keep when positions affording greater kingdom service are opened to him; there are jobs he ought to seek, where his skills can render particular service to the kingdom. (Edmund Clowney’s Called to the Ministry)

How has this shown up or failed to show up in your experience?  How is the Gospel coming to shape your choice and practice of your vocation?
