So this week in the news there has been the shock resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. This would be the only papal resignation for 600 years and all the discussion are now how to appoint a new pope when the current one will still be around. This is all because the pope is God‘s representative on Earth, can there be two? It must be an interesting discussion in St Peters. So whilst it is an interesting discussion there, my view is that we are all chosen by God, that we are all his representatives. However we are all chosen to do different things, we can’t all be called to be pope. (Which is a good job, as I’m not sure they are accepting female pope‘s yet!) So for me, God has called me to be a youth and childrens minister in Stafford, he has called me to be a wife and mother and he has called me to work with those living in poverty in Chennai. It’s amazing how when you do what God calls you do, God really blesses you and the people that he calls you to work with.
So what about you? What has God called you to do? Is it to be the next pope? Or bless others financially? Or bless people by offering hospitality? Or be a Christian in your school/college or workplace? Or maybe to go on a short term mission to Chennai?
