Vocation is God’s call to His children. Vocation works because God works.
GOD CALLS …
First God calls us to Himself. Then He calls us to His work. For some people, vocation is a call to religious life. For others, it’s a call to family or to a career field or to some other special activity. Vocation means different things to different people, but it’s always something very special.
God uniquely made you in His image (Gen 1:27). He sculpted you for your life’s purpose (Jer 29:11-12). And even now, God is at work equipping you for the plan of your life (Eph 4:11-14). Yes, God is calling you!
PEOPLE RESPOND …
Reach One teach believers to understand and respond to God’s call. We help equip the faithful to be Christ’s disciple in everyday life. Our special work includes inspiring others to seek a closer relationship with God through Jesus Christ and the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
When a person actually realizes who he or she truly is in God’s kingdom, that person quickly recognizes when God is calling (1 Sam 3:1-12). To better understand what we’re saying, think back to Jesus’ raising Lazarus from the dead (John 11:43).
Had Jesus not used Lazarus’ name when He called, every soul in the graveyard would have come out of the grave at that moment. Or had Laszarus not know his own name, he would not have responded to the Christ’s call by name. Your name is an important key to answering God’s call.
LIFE HAPPENS …
The vision for Reach One includes helping others see the importance of everyday life to vocation and God’s kingdom. When we work and love others, we look a lot like Jesus!
We can sanctify both our families and our work in Christ, making them holy. And, as it turns out, when we love and work in Christ, it actually solves many of society’s problems that “experts” cannot seem to fix.
Here’s the key:
Vocation (God’s call) works because God works.
We’ll explore God’s call as it pertains to our daily work in more detail here on our site. Be sure to refresh yourself with our CONTEMPLATIONS periodically too. They’re short, easy to read, and inspirational!
