1 Corinthians 7:17–24
Famous Christian Quotes About Calling, Anointing, Invitation, Purpose, Vocation
Preachers Should Be Certain of Their Calling
Let the preacher of the gospel be certain that his calling is from God. And it is expedient that according to the example of Paul, he should magnify this his calling, to the end that he may win credit and authority among the people, just as the king’s ambassador magnifies his office and calling. And thus to glory is not vain, but a necessary kind of glorying, because he does not glory in himself, but in the king who has sent him, whose authority he desires to be honored and magnified.
A Deliberate, Intelligent Purpose
This is the one purpose of God, the great worker in heaven, the source and master of all work, that the glory of His love and power and blessing may be shown. This is the one purpose of Christ, the great worker on earth in human nature, the example and leader of all our work. This is the great purpose of the Holy Spirit, the power that works in us.… As this becomes our deliberate, intelligent purpose, our work will rise to its true level, and lift us into living fellowship with God.
“Vessels Meet for the Master’s Use”
If I know my own heart today, I would rather die than live as I once did, a mere nominal Christian, and not used by God in building up His kingdom. It seems a poor empty life to live for the sake of self.
Let us seek to be useful. Let us seek to be vessels meet for the Master’s use, that God, the Holy Spirit, may shine fully through us.
