There are so many references in scripture of God engaging with individuals and setting them a task to complete. That task is completed from a place of trusting relationship between God and the one He sends.
It is such a pity that often following Jesus or an invitation to accept the gospel of the Kingdom does not also implicityly and explicitly suggest that in the same way that God called people for service before, He calls the individual to service now. This is not just a love thing going on of gazing adoringly at the Saviour. It’s engaging with the Saviour in discovering what He has called you to do in getting on with Kingdom business. What’s your role? What’s your calling? What part do you play? How does God intend to use you as His vessel?
Those kind of questions should stir something deep within that works it way out to serving in the area that is in line with the heart of God. It is one of the reasons why I love this particular tune. The encouragement to carry on with the work by discovering, receiving and living out the calling God has placed on your life.
Great tune that I hope you will likewise enjoy and by which you can be encouraged.
For His Name’s Sake
