Experience the Doing

““Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.”

– Galatians 6:9

Yesterday I encouraged you to show up for life if you want more from life and your Christian walk! Simply showing up, being present, and sharing the love of Jesus with others is the best solution. When you show up to life, to challenges, to touch someone’s life or to help someone who’s hurting, you gain experience. The doing is what you experience. Yes, you may experience pain, but you also may experience laughter. Both winning and losing are part of the experience. 

The power of God is experienced, but most importantly, you are able to develop the type of relationships that will have a transformative effect on your life and the world around you. This is the first and most important thing you need to do when you show up — experience.  If you’re a millennial or Gen Z looking for a job, what’s the number one question employers ask you? What is your work experience? Your degree may not matter, but your experience does. A common frustration is, how can I get experience if I don’t have a job? And how can I get a job if I don’t have any experience? 

Friend, God can provide many ways to obtain experience outside of your employment. Pay is so often considered the most important factor. You’ve heard me say this before, in a job, you get two salaries. You get your first salary in the form of money. Your second salary comes from the experience you gain. Both are equally important. One of the most important questions you can reflect upon regarding your job, your involvement in church, or in your circle of friends is: Who am I becoming? Ask God what these life transformations mean to you. 

Prayer


Father, show me who I am becoming at work, in my church, and with my friends.

Reflection


How connected are you to transformative relationships?
