We each have a call… we each have a caller. Not necessarily a ‘burning bush’ or a ‘leave your nets’ or ‘first let me bury my father’ experience… but finding our place and living it out with faithful abandonment to the grace and mercy of God is however expected, as each of us is called.
Paul, an apostle, wrote:
“I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, exhort you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you were called. With all humility, meekness, and patience, bearing with one another in love, be eager to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, even as you were called in one hope of your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of the gift of Christ.” (Ephesians 4:1-7)
Paul encourages us “to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you were called” (v.1) and “even as you were called in one hope of your calling”
(v.4), and spills into “grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of the gift of Christ.” We have just the measure of grace we need for our calling.
“You did not choose me, but I chose you, and appointed you, that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that the Father may give you whatever you ask Him in My name.” Jesus
