Embracing Flexibility and Obedience in Kingdom Work

Embracing Flexibility and Obedience in Kingdom Work


Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

In the pursuit of living out our faith, we often find ourselves navigating the intersections of identity, significance, and our life’s purpose. Our journey leads us to a profound realization that our worth and impact extend beyond our professions or titles. It is essential to embrace flexibility and obedience as we embark on our journey of kingdom work, where every aspect of our ordinary lives holds extraordinary potential.

It’s essential to hold our degrees or job titles lightly, recognizing that our roles may evolve and change. The path to kingdom work may twist and turn unexpectedly, prompting us to remain open and obedient to God’s leading. Our obedience to His plans often requires flexibility in our own.

Our ordinary tasks and interactions become opportunities for God to bring forth the extraordinary. With His promise to be with us every step of the way, we can approach our interactions with courage and boldness, knowing that we are vessels for sharing God’s love with the world.

It is through kingdom work, embracing flexibility, and maintaining obedience to God’s call, that we can recognize the vast potential of our everyday lives. God’s presence empowers us to bring His extraordinary love into the ordinary moments of life, making each day a part of His divine plan.
