Locating Your Calling

Why does God want the totality of your life before He shows you your calling? The answer to that question is found in John 7:16–17, where Jesus said, “My teaching is not Mine, but His who sent Me. If any man is willing to do His will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or whether I speak from Myself.”

Cul-de-Sac Christianity by Tony Evans

Sometimes I get the impression that when we ask God to bless us, we forget the full definition of a blessing. We forget that God doesn’t want us to be culd-e-sac Christians where all of our blessings end with us. God wants us to be conduit Christians where all of our blessings extend through us to others.
