The Tug of Your Calling

the tug of Your calling
to leave the pews
the congregation
safety with these walls
to go where we are led
to submit to You our all

We pray for Your guidance
an answer to our yearnings
to live out the faith
what we feel in our hearts
yet we long, we linger
we wallow in our comfort
growing only inside
without serving our neighbors

The world where we are to work
out there beyond the doors
to go as we are able
not as we are ready
using what we have
the things we have been gifted
to go as we are led
to the ends of the earth

Serving our master
loving our neighbor
bearing witness to
the grace of God in our lives
Going out beyond these walls
into the street
the radical hospitality of Christ
showered on our feet

Romans 12:2 (God’s Word Translation)

“Don’t become like the people of this world.
Instead, change the way you think.
Then you will always be able to determine
what God really wants—what is good, pleasing, and perfect.
