Thanks Brother for sharing the article. Though he didn't actually get into what the hard questions were which would have cut short the learned lessons in his own life. It was still open enough that there are hard questions we need to ask ourselves when answering God Called Me. Still the understanding must be that it will require sacrifice, which I did not see in this article. Even when it is all said and done, if God has called us, and we know His voice. Though all else (people), may appear contrary to this calling, we must obey, or surely in not doing so there will also be consequences.

Here's one that always touches me. Expanded upon this, is that the people would come from different villages just to read the words on the wall! His Word will reach and spread to every part of the World, one way or another! There are so many testimonies from all parts of the World of those who have given their all that this may be so. This is but one of many.

Again thanks for sharing brother!

With the Love of Christ Jesus.

Whatever we, humans, do God will receive those chosen from before the foundation of the world. We are all called according to our own purposes in God's(Romans 8:28).

Is our "own" purposes or God's that is being talked about in Romans 8:28?
God's going to get what He wanted before He began, whatever any and all of us mere humans purpose ourselves to do in this physical realm. God does not live by words that proceed from our human mouthing. We live by every word that proceeds from His.

You got all that out of Romans 8:28? No need to explain. :smile:

The reason I asked is that you said "We are all called according to our own purposes in God's" I now reason that you meant that our purposes are fulfilled in direct correlation to what God has planned for us from before the outset of everything.

I sense that you might agree, thought maybe not in so many words with the statement that it's His Story that is being told/manifested in this reality.

With the Love of Christ Jesus.

John 3:28 Ye yourselves bear me witness, that I said, I am not the Christ, but that I am sent before him. 29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom: but the friend of the bridegroom, which standeth and heareth him, rejoiceth greatly because of the bridegroom's voice: this my joy therefore is fulfilled. 30 He must increase, but I must decrease.

2 Corinthians 4:5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus' sake. 6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

1 Corinthians 3:5 Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers by whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? 6 I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. 7 So then neither is he that planteth any thing, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.

It is for His pleasure we are and were created.
