What is the call of God?
The highest possible call for any Christian is our high
calling to come to Jesus and follow Him. Being called to be a pastor or the
head of some great ministry endeavour is not the top of the heap. You can have
a title and be well known for things that you do, but it means nothing without
a personal surrender to your high calling.
When Paul did a fearless, moral inventory of his career as a
religious teacher and apostle, he confessed this to the Church at Philippi.
Paul was not interested in playing it safe and leaving
behind a personal legacy. He only wanted to know Jesus more and more. That was
his high calling, and we are invited to hang on loosely to our resume of
accomplishments and bragging rights.
Deep down, Paul knew that his greatest accomplishments were
garbage compared to the excellency of knowing Jesus.
Paul did not put any confidence in his own arm of flesh. He
could work hard like anyone else and take personal risks, but always in the
context of knowing Jesus and making Him known to a lost and dying world that
was not listening to the Father’s voice.
