Being in the right Place

Act 18:24-26 Meanwhile, a Jewish man named Apollos, a native of Alexandria, came to Ephesus. He was an eloquent speaker with a thorough knowledge of the Tanakh. (25) This man had been informed about the Way of the Lord, and with great spiritual fervor he spoke and taught accurately the facts about Yeshua, but he knew only the immersion of Yochanan. (26) He began to speak out boldly in the synagogue; but when Priscilla and Aquila heard him, they took him aside and explained to him the Way of God in fuller detail.

After finding the right place, where God wanted me to be, there came a whole new dimension about growing into my calling as a teacher. I found the people that could explain the Way of God in fuller detail to me.

It is so important to be at the right place. What is the right place though? As Weinberg, an Information Science guru, said: “no matter what the problem is, it’s always a people problem.” If this holds true for computers, how much more for faith! It’s all about people.

Therefore, the right place has a lot to do with relationships, in all directions. Do you have somebody fathering you, investing his life in you, even correcting you to bring you on, even further then he himself would go? Do you have a leadership with complementing gifts (Eph 4:11ff) and talents? Are there people you can invest yourself in?

Obviously there is another requirement for the right place: am I getting fed? Is the Word of God taught? If not, who would on free will go eat in a bad restaurant again?
