Worship at Gloria Dei Saturdays 5:00pm, Sundays 9:00am and 10:30am

God's Calling On Our Lives

Hello Gloria Dei,

Over these past weeks in worship, whether you’ve been at Gloria Dei in person or have worshiped online, we’ve focused on different people of the Bible. We began with the prophet Jonah and then moved on to Ruth, then David, then Paul, and this week Barnabas.

You and I have lots in common with these biblical characters. We are people who journey through life looking to God for guidance, purpose, and direction. We are people who have heard and experienced God’s word of salvation and grace in our lives. We are people who have enjoyed many successes in life. And we are people who have made many mistakes in our lives too.

I love learning about the different people in the Bible because I see that their lives, just like mine, are a mixture of joys, challenges, laughter and tears. I know you can relate.

The good news in all of this is that our overarching identity is “Child of God”. Think about it. You have been chosen by God. You have been claimed by God. God has done all that is necessary for you to have abundant and eternal life. Through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus, your salvation and eternity is secure. Now, you are free to live your life loving and respecting others. Your calling is to love God and love one another.

On this Labor Day weekend spend some time reflecting on the vocation that God has given you. What are the gifts God has given you? How do you spend your days? Are you employed full-time or part-time? Do you spend days taking care of family or children? Do you volunteer your time at church and/or other organizations? Do you spend time in lifting up others to God in prayer? No matter our age, young or old, our vocation as children of God gives our lives purpose.

REMINDER: Beginning this week we move back to two Sunday morning worship times: 9:00 and 10:30.
