Am I serving God now? This question may make you feel restless. Mary and Joseph find their twelve-year-old son in the temple studying with the leaders. He already senses the call of God. But what does he do next? Does he recruit apostles and preach sermons and perform miracles? No, he just goes home and learns the family business. Want to bring focus to your life? Go home, love your family, take care of business.
But Max, I want to be a missionary. Your first mission field is under your roof. But Max, I want to do great things for God. Good, do them, at work. Be a good employee.
God allows you to start fresh at any point in your life. Just make sure you’re serving God at every place in your life. 1 Peter 4:2 urges us, “From now on, then, you must live the rest of your earthly lives controlled by God’s will and not by human desires.”
