WASTED LIVES

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 1 John 2:3-6

…Arise, …and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
Acts 9:3-6
 
In my estimation, most people are called in an ordinary way and this makes them ignore their calling. Many people are called but they simply do not know it. They are looking for the call in a spectacular way. But the call often comes in an ordinary way. Senior prophets like Elijah made the mistake of looking for God’s call in a dramatic and spectacular way. If you continue to look for the call of God in that way, you will miss your blessing.

Some people are called in a spectacular way. The apostle Paul was called in a dramatic and spectacular fashion. He saw a shining light come down from Heaven and heard a voice speaking to him. He fell to the ground and was struck with blindness for several days. Unfortunately, whenever someone shares an experience he had, everyone wants to have the same experience. Everybody wants to see a light and hear a voice; otherwise, they will not believe they are called. But God cannot be put into a box and He cannot be expected to repeat Himself in the same predictable way time and time again.

Do not waste their your life away, doing nothing for the Lord. Do not miss God’s call by looking for it in a dramatic and spectacular way. Remember, you will give account to God one day: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Hebrews 9:27). “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad” (2 Corinthians 5:10).
