The Christian and the Call of God (1)

  • Every person, at some tine or other, will ask about the meaning and purpose of life. We all attempt to answer the question related to the reason for our own existence. We ask, "What is the meaning of life?" The Bible gives us the answer. It is found in Colossians 1:18.
    . . . That in all things He (Jesus Christ) might have the preeminence.
  • How the Christian is related to this all-inelusive plan of God is found in that great Biblical theme "The Call of God." We recognize, first of all, that this refers to salvation. In His sovereign grace God speaks conviction and life to sinners. (II Thess. 2:13,l4) However, this "Call" goes far beyond salvation. It has to do with all believers. It designates the plan of God in each of our lives. God has called each of us to live for His glory.
