Called and Chosen
No matter your age, God has called you for such a time as this. For such a time as this. That phrase comes from the book of Esther in the Bible. Esther was a Jewish woman who risked her life to serve God and to save her people when they were under the rule of the Persian Empire and about to be annihilated.
When deciding whether to go before the king to plead for her people, Esther’s cousin gave these words: “For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)
Think of your local church and its mission. It has been placed within the community and has a mission to seek the lost and strengthen the saved. And you play an integral part of that mission and the future of the church. Your knowledge, dedication and experience are needed. You have been placed specifically where you are because God is giving you the opportunity to make an everlasting difference. No matter your age, God has called you.
For such a time as this.
