In every church I tell the people to stay as they were when the Lord Jesus chose them and God called them to be his own. Now I say the same thing to you.
I love this verse. Paul is telling the followers of Christ to serve God right where you are. If you work, serve Him there. If you are a stay-at-home mom, serve God from there. If you are single, serve God in that setting. If you are married, serve God there.
1 Corinthians goes on to talk about serving God as a slave, if you were a slave while called, etc...
There is tremendous freedom in this verse. This is telling us that we don't have to be perfect in order to serve Him. We don't have to be like the person standing next to you on Sunday morning. If you are a Christian, you have been called to serve God right where you are!
Come on Ladies, look around you and see how God can uniquely use you today.
