Embrace God’s Call for You

Embrace God’s Call for You

Embracing God’s call for you can be an intimidating proposition if you think the task is too big or you are too small. Half way through Paul’s letter, Timothy probably felt that way. Sunday we’ll look at what’s required if you are going to step into service for God in spite of your misgivings and what you need to know if you’re going to be effective.

Command and teach these things. Let no one despise you for your youth, but set the believers an example in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, in purity. Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching. Do not neglect the gift you have, which was given you by prophecy when the council of elders laid their hands on you. Practice these things, immerse yourself in them, so that all may see your progress. Keep a close watch on yourself and on the teaching. Persist in this, for by so doing you will save both yourself and your hearers. (1 Timothy 4:11-16 ESV)
