Does God Call People Today

See also

God calls people to worship and give him glory, but not everyone hears or accepts that call. The only way we can get to God is if He calls us to him. John 6:44 states, "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him. And I will raise him up on the last day." Our salvation is not dependent on us but on God. We have to accept that call. We are called because we were created in His image and for His own pleasure. Ephesians 1:4 tells us the following, "For He chose us in Him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in His sight."
God wants us to live a life that is worthy of the calling we have received from Him. Just like a doctor is supposed to live worthy of his profession; he is to heal the sick and care for those who are ill. As Christians God wants us to live a life worthy of the calling is has given us through His son Jesus Christ. "I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, entreat you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, (vs 2) with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing forbearance (endure with) to one another in love, (vs 3) being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." Ephesians 4:1-3
Paul tells us in 1 Corinthians chapter 1 that God did not choose the wise or the strong or the well born, but he chose the weak and the foolish so that people had to recognize it was God who was responsible for the results that only God can bring. It is through the Holy Spirit that God seeks us. The question is are we willing to hear and accept that calling…
