erhaps you have heard the expression a call to preach or a call to the ministry. Exactly what does this mean? How does it work?
This podcast looks at a few examples of men called in the New Testament time and to two quotes of statements from Paul on the called ministry of the Word. It begins with Paul's account of his own call to preach God's truth to the Gentiles. Then to his younger friend Timothy who has also been called to the work of an Overseer, bishop, pastor, teacher elder. These are all synonymously to refer to men called to preach-teach-exhort the Word, the inspired writings of the Old and New Testament to people especially within the assemblies, congregations to enable God's people for the work of ministry.

Text: Mark 1:14-20 | Speaker: Levi Bakerink | Description: After His baptism and inauguration into His ministry as the Messiah, Jesus now comes to Galilee proclaiming a message of repentance and faith for the kingdom of God is here. With that message comes the calling to follow Him and leave everything else behind. That same message and calling are given to us, how will we respond?
A verse by verse through the Bible Study Of I Chronicles 17:1 thru Chapter 18:10. king David was forbidden to build the temple. This was a good example of how God sometimes says there are some things we cannot do in service for Him. He has His reasons we should not argue with Him...

We continue with Thomas Watson's study of the second part of the sixth petition of the Lord's Prayer, "And deliver us from evil," finishing the means to use to be kept from acts of sin, 9-13 of 13: (9) be diligent in a calling (Such as lively idly, expose themselves to sin. If we have no work to do, Satan will find us work.); (10) fix the eye of your mind upon the 'beauty of holiness'; (11) meditate frequently on death; (12) beware of a covetous heart; (13) be much in prayer to God.
Jesus is the great deliverer of those who trust in him. All the nations of the world are in view yet even Israel blindness in part has happened to the covenant people. God will redeem his people as a remnant people will be saved.

When God redeemed Israel out of Egypt, He brought them to Sinai, where He made a covenant with them and gave them a new calling in life. And once we are redeemed from slavery to sin, God has made no less a serious covenant with us, and He has given to us a new calling as well.
Paul's Wisdom in Prayer. Ephesians 1:17-23 Paul is praying the Church at Ephesus will come to an understanding and knowledge of what God wants for them.s we look at Paul's prayer for the believers at Ephesus, I want us to see his prayer as a prayer that we should make as our own. The Holy Spirit has put his prayer in His Word so we would pray the same prayer and understand the same things.Paul prays that the believers in Ephesus might know that God is gracious and glorious. Paul speaks of God's immense, immeasurable power.He is telling us that God's power is ours to know and experience! We need God's power for we are often weak and stumble. We need God's power because we insufficient and unable to do certain things on our own. We need God's power because we are ineffective in ourselves.
How does the Apostle Paul begin what will prove to be a difficult conversation with the Corinthian church? By first going back to how they were first brought to Christ, called in the gospel, joined to community, and united with Christ.
