Responding to God’s Call

Reading the Bible every day, you will find God calling you to His will. Are you responding to His call or not? You have the duty to respond to this call as Abraham did. He was called by God, and he responded to that call (Genesis 12:1; Acts 7:3). Are you responding to the word of God every day? For you to serve in response to God’s call, you ought to hear and believe God’s word, and continue in faith. Remember the day you repented and were immersed in water. That was your sign of response to God’s call, when you started a new life in Jesus Christ, God’s only-begotten Son.

Look at Noah - by faith he responded to the call of God to prepare the saving ark (Hebrews 11:7). So your repentance and baptism are signs of answering God’s call to the saving of your life, by the death of your old life in Adam and the start of your new life in Jesus Christ. All of you drew your motives closer to God: that is what Abraham did (Hebrews 11:8).

Living in a family that resists God’s call does not necessarily deny you anything. Remember that Abraham lived many years with his father Terah.

God requires certain qualities in you which he reveals in Micah 6:8. Your response to Him is a sure sign of possessing these good qualities which lead on to eternal life.

God is waiting for your answer through good works (Acts 17:30). It is time for you to answer God’s call (2 Peter 3:9).
