God called: Seeing God’s call unfolding in our lives….

God called Noah, in his old age, to build a boat – a ridiculous and difficult thing – to save the future hope (people and animals) from the coming storm – so that through them all the peoples of the world would be blessed. (Genesis 6-9)

God called Abraham and Sarah, in their old age, to be parents – a ridiculous and difficult thing – to start a peculiar people – so that through them all the peoples of the world would be blessed. (Genesis 12-22)

God called Moses, in his old age, to lead enslaved Hebrews toward freedom – a ridiculous and difficult thing – so that they might be blessed with a renewed fellowship with God, and might be a light to the nations – so that through them all the peoples of the world would be blessed. (Exodus 3-4; Exodus – Deuteronomy)

God called David, in his youth, to be king over Israel – a ridiculous and difficult thing – that the people might be led by a man after God’s own heart – so that through them all the peoples of the world would be blessed. (1 Samuel 16)

God called Esther, in her youth, to be queen of Babylon – a ridiculous and difficult thing – that in courage and faith she might save her people from destruction – so that through them all the peoples of the world would be blessed. (Esther 4)

God called Mary, in her youth, to bear the Son of God into the world – a ridiculous and difficult thing – that in utter humility God might come among us as one of us – so that through Jesus all the peoples of the world would be blessed. (Luke 1:26-56)

God called the apostles, in their youth and uneducated, to start the church as the Body of Christ on earth – a ridiculous and difficult thing – continuing the work of the ministry of Jesus into the future – so that through them all the peoples of the world would be blessed. (Luke 6-9)

God called you, in your youth or your old age or even today, to follow the Son and be born again through faith – a ridiculous and difficult thing – becoming part of His Body the Church and receiving a ministry of the Kingdom of God – so that through you the people of your world would be blessed. (John 3)
