One of my Bible school teachers once said that, if God were done with you, you’d be dead.
I’m not retired. Not even close to it. I know I’ve still got a lot of time and a lot of work ahead of me. I think a lot of people give up way too early, though. When they retire from their career, they retire from the ministry. That’s not to say that you can’t take it easy in old age, but many people act as though their calling ends when their job does.
For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.
Romans 11:29 (ESV)
IRREVOCABLE: not to be revoked or recalled; unable to be repealed or annulled; unalterable
No matter what your age or stage in life, God’s purpose and plan for you will never be called back. The call is permanent. You’re not done until you’re dead.
