Remember Old Yeller?
Salt & Light Volume II, Issue 30 by D. Scott Prindle

"But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." (I Peter 2:9)

Kings & Priests
When you begin your day, do you see yourself as an ambassador for Christ at home, the office, an event, a party?

Remember the movie Old Yeller. The late Fred Gipson from Mason, Texas wrote the book it is based on.

At the entrance to the library in Mason stands a bronze sculpted by Garland Weeks. People from everywhere reminisce some part of their childhood as they come to view the artwork depicting the boy Travis and Old Yeller.

Garland Weeks knows something about connecting His work to the Kingdom of God. "When I walk into my studio, I guess it's like a priest walking into his chapel", he said in an interview.

Why is this important? Most Christians never make the connection that they are kings and priests. To them, ministry means seminary, bible school, missions, serving in their church, or some other form of service apart from their "other" work.

Truthfully, your "other" work is your primary ministry. It is as sacred as any other ministry work. Doesn't it make sense that what you spend the most time doing will give you the most opportunities to be Salt & Light?

When God connects your hearts desire, your career, and your calling into one package, a renewed passion for abundant life begins. Each day you're a kingly priest walking into your court.

Go for it!

Love Never Fails,
