The Call of God


God is always calling us—first to enter into relationship with Him, and then to walk in His plan.

2 Thessalonians 2:13-17

Does the Lord still call people, or was that something He did only in Bible times? Does He speak to a specific few or to everyone? Although God may not use an audible voice, He’s still in the business of seeking followers. He calls people to:

Salvation. Because sin has created a barrier between man and God, He offers salvation through Christ.

Sanctification. Once we have been reconciled to the Lord, He sets us apart for His purposes. A sanctified life isn’t perfect but is bent toward righteousness and obedience. Although God begins this work at salvation and continues until our physical death, the process also requires our participation. If we choose not to cooperate with the Lord, our growth in Christlikeness will be hindered.

Service. God has chosen to establish His kingdom in the world through those who are saved. Our job is to serve Him by accomplishing what He has planned for us.

How are you responding to these calls? Remember that someday we will all stand before God and give an account of our life. Those who have a habit of responding to His voice will experience spiritual abundance and blessing, both here on earth and one day in heaven.
