This week the Baptist Standard ran a good article on emphasizing calling in our churches entitled, “Hearing the Call.” Here is the link http://www.baptiststandard.com/postnuke/index.php?module=htmlpages&func=display&pid=6817
The article focuses on hearing God’s vocational call into ministry. Although few will be called and fewer still will follow the call into vocational ministry, God is calling all of us to serve the Kingdom of God in some way. Sometimes this call lasts a lifetime, most of the time our call is for a time or for a season of life and will subsequently change over time. Pray about God’s call on your life for this season of your life. Take time this week to consider this and reflect upon this. If you have felt God’s calling then reflect upon your faithfulness to that calling. If you have not felt God’s calling or are unclear on that call (as most of us are most of the time) then spend time in silence, reflection, and meditation, considering your call. May we be about the work of the work of God this week!
