Well, here goes. This is my first try at a blog. I’m not sure what I’m doing, so I don’t know how this will turn out. This post will serve to explain purpose of my blog.
Years ago, I felt as though The Lord was calling me to preach, but, so far, The Lord has chosen to keep me in a secular occupation. I pursued going into the ministry many times, but God always closed the door. It seemed like I would always be “just an electrician.”
I struggled with this for years, wondering why The Lord kept me out of “the ministry.” I was intimidated by people in “the ministry” who I felt looked down on me for being “just an electrician.” Well, through many circumstances and lessons from The Lord, I learned that, if you are Christian, you are in the ministry. We are all to be a light to those in our circle of influence. There are people out there that those in the “ministry” could never reach, but you and I can. Don’t take me wrong. God has a special purpose for those in “full time ministry”, but that shouldn’t make the rest of us feel less used of God.
So, if you are a plumber, carpenter, lawyer, or whatever secular occupation there is, God can and will use you, if you let Him. I am in the ministry. I am called of God to be an electrician. This blog will be a platform to express the thoughts and lessons God lays on my heart as I work from day to day. I call it “electric theology.”
