Calling found in Journey: Matthew 10:1-4

The answer to calling must be grounded in a strong and growing relationship with God submitting to his transformation into sainthood that rests upon the best platform of orthodox belief. For the core beliefs to define myself as a Christian, reflect upon the Nicene Creed. If I cannot tolerate the mysteries of the core Christian beliefs, I will not be able to tolerate the mysteries of a God outside the limits of my dimensions of time, space, and matter. If I cannot accept these mysteries, I will not find an answer to calling. Failure to submit means pride controls.

Additional Readings

Spending time with the daily reading of My Utmost for His Highest, by Oswald Chambers along with regular Bible study and prayer can assist me in obtaining an understanding of calling. Use of the lectionary found in the Book of Common Prayer serves as an excellent Bible reading plan that links parallels in Psalms, Old Testament readings, and New Testament readings.

Questions

  • Do I know Jesus well enough to go out?
  • How does the atonement relate to what is my calling?
  • Do I know my calling, but am I pretending not to know? Why?
  • What do I think about becoming a saint?

Passage for Meditation

That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God. I Corinthians 2:5

Prayer Lord I confess I do not know what is best. I give my life to you fully. I surrender and abandon all rights to myself. To your honor and glory, make me a sinner as holy as you will. I believe that you will make me a saint and I submit to your direction. Show me the steps I need to take to find out what is my calling, Amen.
