God's Calling

I love seeing God's calling on lives. I love seeing people come to a relationship with Jesus. But I really get pumped when I see God calling people into vocational ministry. I remember how God worked on my life until I said yes. The past month I have had 3 different individuals in our ministry tell me how God has been moving on their live and they feel called to vocational ministry. Awesome! It comes as no suprise! When you are around people who God is moving in you can see it. In Acts 4:13 it says that the Sanhedrin were amazed that Peter and John who were ordinary men could speak with boldness. It wasn't a seminary degree or Bible school that gave them power. The last part of the verse says that the Sanhedrin took notice that they had been with Jesus. My prayer is that we will all spend so much time Jesus that people take notice. I always can tell when people have spent time with Jesus by their actions. It doesn't matter what they say, it is how they live their lives.

You're right. Peter and John spoke with authority and boldness. They didn't need no stinkin seminary degree.

But they also lived in their context. The one that we are looking back on trying to figure out. They didn't need the historical background. They WERE the historical background.

Do we need a seminary degree? No. But is it so incredibly important with respect to gaining true insight on the context? Is it so important to help gain the abilities to rightly interpret the Scriptures, both historically and grammatically? Dang skippy it is.

I had been doing things all wrong until I took Hermeneutics. How many of our Christian brothers and sisters do the same?

Can you tell I just got back from a NOBTS workshop?
