True Self


What is your calling?

(Listen to my song “I Want to Follow You” by clicking HERE)


John 1:38

Jesus turned and saw them following him and said to them, “What are you looking for?”


Interesting question…isn’t it?

So…what are you looking for?

Are you looking for the things that connote success in this world…things like possessions, power and prestige?

Those things aren’t bad…in and of themselves…as long as you don’t get attached to any of them. That is the catch.

You can find a certain amount of pleasure from those things and need a certain amount of those things to get by in this world.

But none of those things will ever be enough to satisfy the deep yearning inside your soul.

Jesus said that you couldn’t serve both money and God.

It’s really a question of whether you are looking to build your own kingdom…or God’s kingdom.

Which is your main motivation?

When you look to build God’s kingdom you are using your gifts and talents to serve others in making the world a more loving, forgiving, compassionate and just place.

Jesus is a great model to follow.
