Have you seen a man who is courting a woman?
Do you notice how much that man would do almost anything just to be with her?
Can you imagine how that man grabs every effort to know the love of her life, spends time with her, and get to know more about her?
Whether you are in a relationship or not, I know you have an idea what happens when a man tries to get the sweet “yes” of his lady.
Now, I want you to think about this:
What if you have the same zeal and passion when building a close relationship with Yahweh, your Creator?
The reason why God called you
We have read in the previous chapters how God called us and why we must respond immediately to His call.
However, have you ever asked yourself, “Why would God call you? Call you to do what?”
Christ called His disciples and the disciples answered that call.
What’s the purpose of Yahshua calling Peter, John, James, Andrew, Phillip, and the rest of the disciples?
Is it to make them a slave? Is it to simply make them an instrument to fulfill a selfish purpose?
When Yahshua said, “Follow Me,” He was inviting the disciples to live closer to Him.
Jesus wanted them to get more acquainted with Him. He wanted to foster an intimate relationship with them and this would only be possible if these individuals spend more time with Yahshua.
More than just accepting the call of God
There’s a reason why God has called you.
He wants to build a closer relationship with you. He is inviting you to become His child and Him as your Father.
It is NEVER enough to just accept the call of God. Responding to God’s call means you are willing to take the necessary steps to get closer to your Creator.
A willingness to know
Joshua’s Outpost is a source for men to find encouragement to be bold in their faith and walk with Jesus Christ.
