Monday Meditation – Called 10/3/2022

 

“Come,” the angel said to the writer of the Book of Revelation (Rev 4:1), inviting him to see the beauty of the Holy City coming from heaven. “Come and see,” said Philip, inviting Nathanael to meet Jesus (John 1:46).

 

Let me show you. Come and see. These are invitations each of us have heard at one time or another in our lives. When we are called, and we heed the call, we may learn something new or receive a gift. Or we may be called to do something for Christ.

 

As a Christian, I am called daily to listen to God and to respond. The problem is that I often don’t hear the call, or I find myself so busy with other things that I fail to listen to the call.

 

Therefore, I need to constantly ask myself: Where am I being called to recognize Jesus in my life? Could it be in the person standing by the side of the road holding a sign which says “homeless?” Could it be in the cashier who rings up my groceries, or the person sitting beside me on the bus?

 

And I also must ask myself: What am I being asked to do as a result of that call? Should I donate some money? Should I offer a smile and some encouraging words? Should I take the time to just be with someone and listen to them?

 

I am called every day to find Christ. And so I must look, really look, at the people around me, for all of them are Christ! I need to figure out what can I do for them that I would do if that person were Christ.

 

This past week I found an opportunity to do this. A person who I knew, but not well, started talking to me. I was in a bit of a hurry, but I decided to take the time to let the person talk. I tried to encourage them in a small way, and when we parted only a few minutes later, we both were smiling. I think unknowingly I may have had an encounter with Christ, and it didn’t take much time at all.

 

I challenge you to look for a call this week. Look at one person you meet in a new way. Smile at them. Say something complimentary or positive to them. Maybe take a little time to chat with them and listen. You may find a blessing as you feel the call.

 

Have a blessed Monday!
