Called By God

The Gospel of Jesus Christ saves sinners. 

Your pastor cannot save you. Your good works cannot save you. Christ alone saves and God has chosen the people who will be saved. 

Romans 10:13-15 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!

God may use a pastor or another Christian to save a sinner through the preaching of the word but ultimately it’s God that calls the sinner to repentance and faith. 

Romans 8:30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

And this call happens before we’re born. Only God knows who is going to be saved. We are just the lucky instruments God uses us to spread his Gospel. And it’s His Gospel that converts a pile of dead bones to a glorious eternal life. 

Another fact about this glorious calling is that once he calls us we are His forever.  

Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:

This should give us all the confidence in the world! 

The God that created everything and sustains everything is sustaining our place in heaven as well. 

Put your faith in that and share this good news with everyone you can!
