The Christian's Calling From God

The Christian life begins when we hear and respond to the inner call of the living Jesus Christ in the gospel, Rom. 10:14; John 10:27. This calling of God defines the entirety of the Christian's life. The Christian is to live, believing that God in Christ has called him to be what he is and where he is, using the gifts God's Spirit has given him to their fullest extent. "It is not an accident that a person is where he is, and like he is, when he is converted, and provided that he is not engaged in a course of life which is intrinsically sinful, he is to regard that situation as God's calling to him." - Paul Helm
