THE PLEASURE OF GOD

Eric Liddell was born in 1902, the son of missionaries in China. His story is retold in the film Chariots of Fire. Eric felt called to give his life to God, and in that pursuit he trained and planned to become a missionary, like his parents. But Eric had a gift. He could run, and every door was opening for him to do it. Doors opened all the way to the Olympics. As the film portrays Eric processing his calling and his gifts with his sister, he says these famous words: “I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel his pleasure.”1

Some of us are hung up on looking for super spiritual gifts like prophecy or healing. But what if you are just fast? What if you are a great musician? What if you excel at accounting? What if you feel God’s pleasure as you design buildings or format PTA calendars?

When do you feel God’s pleasure?

There is no spiritual and secular divide. We have built these divisions.

The answer to this question will help you determine the unique things he has given you to use while you are here. There is no spiritual and secular divide. We have built these divisions.

“Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Cor. 10:31). Even the seemingly small and boring parts that may not seem spiritual.

We are all given things so that we might show God to others. The raw materials of our lives will come together and be used to bless others and build God’s kingdom.
