Jesus is Calling
We are two weeks into the new year. How’s your spiritual resolution going? What growth steps are you taking in your walk with the Lord? For the weary and lost soul, Jesus is calling! For the spiritually-born believer, Jesus is calling! None of us have arrived. There is always room for growth, always someone who needs to hear the Good News of Jesus’ saving grace.
Resolve to read, study and meditate on God’s Word. If you’re already doing that, resolve to do it even more. Are you setting aside specific time to pray each day? If you are married or soon-to-be, are you praying aloud together with your spouse? Attend or start a Bible study, buy some KJB tracts and share the Good News! Buy some Halloween tracts and pass them out to your neighborhood on Oct. 31. Grow and Go! Start by sharing these messages with someone to encourage and inspire them. Listen to today’s song from legendary country artist Hank Williams, reminding us that Jesus is calling ALL of us!
Psalms 96:3 - “Declare his glory among the heathen, his wonders among all people.” John 15:15a - “Henceforth I call you not servants; for the servant knoweth not what his lord doeth: but I have called you friends …” 2Timothy 1:9 - “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,”
Song Lyrics: When your soul is weary and it seems you've lost your way, Jesus is calling, calling night and day! When you need a Friend to go with you all the way, Jesus is calling, calling night and day. And you will hear Him if you'll just pray. Calling for you (my brother), don't turn away (from Jesus)! If you're lost in sin, there's no need for you to stay, Jesus is calling! If the night is dark, you will soon see the day. Jesus is calling!
We were created with a holy calling, according to the purpose and grace of our Lord. Take time to drown out the world and answer Jesus’ call. If you’re lost in sin, there’s no need for you to stay; if the night is dark, you will soon see the day. Listen carefully, friend … don’t delay! Jesus is calling, won’t you answer today?
