Divine Calling

Why am I here?  Does my life matter?  What am I here for?

The past year-plus for many has shaken the very foundation of those questions.  For some, you feel like your purpose has been put on pause or that purpose has been lost altogether.  Maybe you feel purposeless, lost, wandering through life.  What is your purpose?  Can you really live a life full of purpose? Join us for our 5-part series PURPOSE FULL: you were made for this.

Teaching Notes

“You are an unceasing spiritual being with an eternal destiny in God’s great universe.” Dallas Willard

What is God’s purpose for your life? How do you discover your calling in life?

 

Now in the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen (who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch) and Saul. While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”  So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off. Acts 13:1-3

Discovering Your Calling:

 

  • Called to JESUS. [Acts 9:1-18]

 

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.

Matthew 11:28-29

 

The first purpose of your life, or calling, is to let God love you. - Rick Warren

 

  • Called to FAITHFULNESS. [Acts 9:28-30, 11:25]

 

Paul’s Silent Years: Damascus/Arabia [3 years]; Tarsus [10years]

 

The one who is faithful in a very little thing is also faithful in much; and the one who is unrighteous in a very little thing is also unrighteous in much. Luke 16:10

 

It is the decisions you make in obscurity that will shape your destiny.

 

  • Called to FELLOWSHIP. [Acts 13:1-3]

 

And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25
