It’s pretty common question. What’s your job? What are you doing with your life? There are various ways to ask it. How do we respond to it?
We talked about this a team leader who works in the Middle East. His response was: “I am a servant of the Lord’s way.” I knew what He was getting at, but I had never heard someone phrase it that way. I was expecting missionary or something in reference to the specific work he is doing there. His answer, however, is what we followers of Christ should be saying. I should consider myself a servant of the Lord’s way and feel no fear in saying it outright in conversation. The team leader encouraged us to get to the point whenever we answer questions like that.
