Answer the Call - Sunday, December 1st 2013
2 Corinthians 6:17
"Therefore "Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you."
Have you ever been called to do something? Maybe you received a call from a friend to help them move. You may have received the call from a family member or friend who needed advice. All those things are great, but did you know that as a Christian, you have been called by God? If you have a relationship with Jesus, then you are called by Him to change the world. This may be through personal evangelism, serving at your church, giving to the ministry or many other things. Whatever the call may be, all Christians should obey God's call on their life.
Eleven years ago, God called me on an adventure into ministry. After leading a Bible study in my house, God called me to step out and create a church out of the house. From that moment over a decade ago, God has increased the number of people from 20 to 2000, but more importantly, He has continued to change lives through the teaching of His Word. I had no idea that the call He had placed on my life would end up impacting people all over the nation, but God did. Friend, you have no idea what God is going to do through your obedience to His call on your life. Take that step today. Walk in boldness and faith. Trust the Lord, live for Him and get ready for the adventure of a lifetime!
Life Lesson: We are all called to be different in our lives, and we should be passionate and serious about that calling.
Thank You for saving me and changing my life. Today, I give my life to You and ask that You would use my life for Your glory and the good of others. Give me a passion for the lost and an opportunity to use my gifts and talents for Your Kingdom. You've called me to action, and I'm answering. In Jesus' name, Amen.
