What is Your Vocation?


Do you ever wonder what God's calling you to do with/in your life? Does the idea of being a priest or a nun frighten you? Do you hope (maybe even pray) that God's not calling you?

Prayerfully use this Bible study to help discern your vocation. Grab a pen, paper, and the Word.

Hebrews 10:7
Is this how you feel? What holds you back? What specific things hold you back? List your five greatest fears, in order.

Hebrews 5:1-4
What strikes you about this passage? What are we being called to become?

2 Timothy 1:9
How do we respond?

Isaiah 6:8
Joshua 24:14-15
Is this our response? "It's not gonna be easy, He warns us."

2 Timothy 1:8
2 Timothy 2:3
James 5:10
But others have done it...others have had the courage to respond.

Hebrews 13:7
They have an important task, one that is essential for God's children. It's very clear.

2 Timothy 4:5
Pray for courage. Pray for openness.

Remember, Hebrews 10:7
"Then I said, 'Behold, I come to do your will, O God."

"The priesthood continues the work of redemption on earth...If we really understood the priest on earth, we would die not of fright but of love...The priesthood is the love of the heart of Jesus." -St. John Vianney
