What is it that you are called to do? In what ways is the hand of God upon you for a specific work?
"While they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, 'Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.'" Acts 13.2
Imagine having your name inserted there: 'Set apart for Me __________ & __________ for the work to which I have called them.'"
As with Paul and Barnabas, He calls you in partnership with at least one other person to a specific work. Who is that person(s), and what is that work?
It would have been indescribably tragic if Paul and Barnabas had not responded to the call. We might never have heard the gospel and come to faith, and our calling, had they not responded. We are indebted to them for their faithfulness.
We are involved in a most important relay race: "The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also." 2 Timothy 2.2 Hearing and answering the call is key in passing the faith along.
