Sermon – Understanding and Fulfilling the Call of God
We all have a call of God on our life that can only be fulfilled by us. Do you know your calling and are you fulfilling it? Like Gideon, we can often doubt ourselves or be blinded by our circumstances. Allow God to change your perspective. Activate your calling. And watch God change your storm into a story for his glory!
It was Jesus’ final night with the disciples and he knew his time was short. They had just finished supper and Christ wanted to impart to his friends one last teaching while on earth. He summoned them, “Rise, let us go from here” (John 14:31, ESV) and led them on a walk. Along the way he gave them this analogy:
“I am the true vine, and my Father is the vinedresser. Every branch in me that does not bear fruit he takes away, and every branch that does bear fruit he prunes, that it may bear more fruit. Already you are clean because of the word that I have spoken to you. Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches” (15:1-5).
