Are You Called?

The idea of a "calling" is a very popular subject in Christian circles. Speakers will comment on how God has called them to this ministry or that location. I have heard many people, both on TV and in real life talk about God calling them everywhere and doing everything, even if some of the time the actions contradict each other. Sometimes I think we get the impression that a calling from God is only something for those whose occupation is ministry.

Is that true? Or is there a broader grouping of people that God calls?

The worst thing we can assume about the calling of God is in thinking it is only regarding what we do for a living. I know this is great news for some of you out there who don't like your jobs! No, the calling God has for us is much larger than what we do because our calling also involves who we become. God IS calling you....he is calling you to become the person he created you to be. Jesus called the disciples and told them he would make them fishers of men. He didn't just give them a new job description...he gave them an identity. On Sunday we will be looking at how God called many different people in the Bible and how that relates in the here and now.

How has God called you?

Pastor Zac, I really enjoyed Sunday's sermon. I found my self relating to more than one of the identity thefts.

As a wife, mother, sister, daughter, friend, keeper of the house and all that it takes to maintain, I am curious if you will touch on the "identity theft" that we as parents face when you experience a "loss of self or a loss of your identity" just because of the demands of life.
