Beside listening to Jesus at the time of prayer and learning from the scriptures, the passage from the CE-Pledge: “and to support the work and worship of my own church in every way possible”, leads to a third way the Lord tells us what he expects us to do. Every endeavorer lives in fellowship with the church she/he and her/his CE society belongs to. Sometimes the advice, a remark or a request of a sister or brother in the Lord tell what to do (or not to do). Also the decisions of committees or the board to take up a project, establish a service or any other activity may indicate, what the Lord wants us to do. In case you have to make a major personal decision, it is wise to discuss the matter with an experienced Christian. God has surely other ways too, to speak to his children, but listening prayer, attentive bible reading and taking advice from brothers and sisters are the principle sources to learn “whatever He would like to have me do”.
