Called to a Holy Calling: 2 Tim 1:9 9 He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,
Called because of his purpose and grace Matthew 22:14 14 “For many are invited, but few are chosen.”
Called according to his purpose Romans 8:28 28 And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who[a] have been called according to his purpose.
Consider your calling brothers 1 Corinthians 1:26 26 Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth.
Call to me and I will answer and will tell you great and hidden things Jeremiah 33.3 3 ‘Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’
Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him and to which God has called him 1Corinthians 7:17-24 17 Nevertheless, each person should live as a believer in whatever situation the Lord has assigned to them, just as God has called them. This is the rule I lay down in all the churches. 18 Was a man already circumcised when he was called? He should not become uncircumcised. Was a man uncircumcised when he was called? He should not be circumcised. 19 Circumcision is nothing and uncircumcision is nothing. Keeping God’s commands is what counts. 20 Each person should remain in the situation they were in when God called them.
21 Were you a slave when you were called? Don’t let it trouble you—although if you can gain your freedom, do so. 22 For the one who was a slave when called to faith in the Lord is the Lord’s freed person; similarly, the one who was free when called is Christ’s slave. 23 You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings. 24 Brothers and sisters, each person, as responsible to God, should remain in the situation they were in when God called them.
And I have heard the voice of the Lord who shall I send he sends us; everyone in the room today.
Isaiah 6:8 8 Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, “Whom shall I send? And who will go for us?” And I said, “Here am I. Send me!”
To this He called 2 Thessalonians 2:14 14 He called you to this through our gospel, that you might share in the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.
My calling -Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you. Before you were born, I consecrated you. I appointed you, Jeremiah 1:5 “Before I formed you in the womb I knew[a] you, before you were born I set you apart; I appointed you as a prophet to the nations.”
Chosen Royal -That o may proclaim His excellence of him who called you out of the darkness into His light. 1 Peter 2:9 9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.

The great commission- go make disciples Baptizing them in the name of the father the Son and the Holy Ghost teach them behold I am with you always to the end of the age Matthew 28:19 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

Pay careful attention to yourself and the flock in which the Holy Ghost has made you overseers. Acts 20:28 28 Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God,[a] which he bought with his own blood.[b]
