Synge: the vocation

Monday, December 2, 2019
    Therefore, since we have such a hope, we are very bold.
    —2 Cor. 3:12 (NIV)
    Every Christian, by virtue of membership in the Church, has a vocation to share in the ministry of Christ to the world which has been entrusted to the Church. The vocation is answered in the home and office and factory and field. There it is that the People of God bears its witness to the vocation of the People of God, a people with a people’s diversity and complex vitality, a people comprising a multiplicity of cultures and histories and colours and tongues, a people and not a collection of individuals, a people bound together in allegiance to one King and in obedience to one purpose.

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, enter the ordinary parts of my life.
