worship through word
This past Sunday, Wade Burgess taught us about answering the Call of God on our lives and tells his own story of how God has called him out of the business world into full time ministry.
You can listen to his sermon here on our church podcast, or watch on video now.
Answering The Call
2 Peter 1:5–11
“Calling is not only a matter of being and doing what we are but also of becoming what we are not yet—but are called by God to be.” -Os Guinness
“He is so awe inspiring and His summons so commanding that only one response is appropriate—a response as total and universal as the authority of the Caller.” -Os Guinness
1. What is a call?
- It is more than a casual suggestion that requires action on the part of the hearer.
2. What did it look like?
- A soft whisper that had compression. -1 Kings 19:11–13
3. What to do with it?
- Hear, Listen, Respond
“Our primary calling as followers of Christ is by Him, for Him. Our secondary calling is that everyone, everywhere and in everything should think, speak, live, and act entirely for Him.” -Os Guinness
