So how does God call us? What does it feel like? Is it a onetime thing?
Here is another perspective on the Christian life.
“But I tend to believe that people who just want a cheap way out of their life can find zealotry in a lot of places. The true life of a believer is one of a longer, more hazardous or uphill pilgrimage, and where you uncover slowly the sort of illumination for your next step.” (Bono in Conversation with Michka Assayas)
Ahh Bono – I had to throw this one in. What does he know about how God leads us?
Doesn’t this feel like calling might evolve over time? At times I find discipleship is more like a journey or – dare I say – even a struggle than it is an event. We follow a person (Jesus) and he is on the move, all the time.
Reflecting on life, this feels much like the way God leads me.
It actually is reminiscent of God’s way with a guy named Abram back in the Old Testament – “Go from your own country…to a land I will show you” (Gen 12:1).
