"The Call"

"The Call"

“The Call” – people will refer to it in those terms for the rest of their lives. Maybe it was a personal visit from someone, a telephone call, maybe an e-mail or even a text, but it was some kind of communication which significantly changed their lives from that point forward. 

“The Call” might have been incredibly good news: the acceptance of a marriage proposal, a job offer, or the invitation to participate in some elite organization. 

“The Call” might have been terrifying and challenging, such as the call to military service. 

Most often, however, “The Call” brings heart wrenching, mind numbing news: a serious health diagnosis, the death of a loved one, the loss of a job. 

There is one call in life to which all others are subordinate. This call not only is of more importance, it determines how we will react and respond to the other calls. It is in every sense, THE CALL. Most often it doesn’t hit us in such emotional ways as the other calls. For some people, they don’t even give it a second thought. There is no realization on their part that THE CALL won’t only change some things for life, it will change everything forever. 

THE CALL is simple and straightforward. It comes from Jesus Christ who says: “Come, follow me.” It is a call to let him be the Savior and Lord of our lives. It is a call to let him mold us into the kind of people he created us to be. It is a call that will literally change everything. But what a change it will be! 

How much have you thought about the call of Jesus? If you’re uncertain as to what it means or how it works itself out in the lives of real people, join us for our worship service this Sunday.
