Many in our generation make the mistake of simply looking within to discover their “calling,” but in order to understand what it means to be called, there must be a Caller. So as we’re understanding what exactly it means to be called, we must start with God’s Word, for He is the One who calls us. And He says to us:
“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Once you were not a people, but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.” (1 Peter 2:9-10).
As we gather together as both HMCC of Jakarta and HMCC of Tangerang at the start of 2019, may we all the more understand, receive, and live out our calling as God’s people, that we may proclaim the excellencies of him who called us out of darkness into his marvelous light! Join us this year as we are “Called” together as a church!
