Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!
Well, I have not added to this at all. Not sure I can do this every day, but who knows.
I am focused right now on "Kingdom Identity", how it impacts, and literally controls (dare I say) all the other callings, hopes, aspirations, dreams, and etc. that are in my life.
I am a complicated person because I don't just have :"oine" dream or career path I can follow. Sorting out the "dream" from "calling" and each thing from the other is not always easy for me.
Sometimes I think I get it right, like what I do with the newspaper- it has a clear purpose and intent and a clear sphere in which it operates.
I am working on a story, and that is clear to me, it's a story that God inspired me to write a long time ago, so it's simple- write it.
But in exploring this idea of Kingdom Identity, that is truly exciting, even breath-taking. I am not ready to post my "findings" but I will post the discovery process, just know that where I land may not be where I start, this is a discovery process, which means I am not exactly sure what's around the bend, although I suspect that it will lead to a fundamental course correction (we all need those- in the Navy we learned that you have to stop periodically and re calibrate things for navigation purposes, or if you are plotting the whereabouts of a contact).
I also believe this will help me definitely draw clear boundaries between the different arenas in which God has called me and keep all those "little callings" in harmony with the BIG vision, which is a vision I believe we should ALL share- which I might personally express as something like this: To know, to live out, to enjoy, and to extend the Kingdom of God through faith in Jesus Christ and the love of God, among men and women, where we live, where work, and where we worship, in short everywhere, for the Glory of God.
Nice article, Bill. I enjoyed it!
