God called particular individuals to do specific tasks at specific times
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I; send me!”
Now the LORD came and stood there, calling as before, “Samuel! Samuel!” And Samuel said, “Speak, for your servant is listening.”
But Moses said to God, “Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh, and bring the Israelites out of Egypt?”
God calls all people everywhere
While God has overlooked the times of human ignorance, now he commands all people everywhere to repent,
For the promise is for you, for your children, and for all who are far away, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to him.”
What is your calling?
God calls Christians to live differently
But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people, in order that you may proclaim the mighty acts of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.
Living in peace:
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in the one body. And be thankful.
Living in hope:
Do not repay evil for evil or abuse for abuse; but, on the contrary, repay with a blessing. It is for this that you were called—that you might inherit a blessing.
