Peter Almqvist - What is Your Calling? - Serving

"Finding one's calling in life has become too complicated a process."

What are you good at?

What do you like to do?

The combination of the answer to those questions is more than likely God's plan for life.

It is extremely important to really know what God's calling on your life really is. Without knowing that, we will continue to tread water.

Peter keeps on stressing that serving is the way to become a great leader in God's Kingdom.

I really like how Peter says that he and his staff are just simple people. Those are the type of people that God calls for extraordinary things...simple, ordinary people.

"If we can just get people to stop..."

"People want to hear the gospel, they just don't know how to respond because they usually don't understand"

Peter's humility is very apparent. His goal is to, by whatever means, to spread the Gospel to "all people groups". It is obvious that he operates out of selflessness. That is something that I can struggle with. I have a desire to be in the limelight and usually think my ideas are the best and that others ideas are not that great. But is that necessarily a bad thing?
