What makes you come alive?

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs.  Ask yourself what makes you come alive, and go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”  -Howard Thurman (civil rights leader)

We are each called out of the darkness of sin and into the light of righteousness; we were spiritually dead and now we have life in Christ.  This is our first objective as Christians.  Thereafter God’s will sometimes seems opened-ended: We are to glorify God in whatever we do (1 Corinthians 10:31, NIV)—you may ask, “but what am I to do?”  You may not know just yet.  The real world may need engineering majors, but you can’t help but find law stimulating.  A business degree may make you more marketable, but this may not be the best way for you to market God. 

“Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you”  (Ephesians 5:14).
