I had the clearest experience of “calling” toward church planting to date this morning. It didn’t come at 4:45am, when I got up to read my Bible, pray, and think theologically with the help of John Piper. No, it came in a more humbling place – the shower. It’s the kind of clarification I’ve looked for – a simple sentence that is a complete thought. It sounds painful in many ways, but I’m reminded of the words of Paul . . .

In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, while evil men and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, and how from infancy you have known the holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus.

2 Timothy 3:12-15
