Our Calling

Our calling

COVID-19 has made the world acutely aware of the fragility of life.
For many of us (me included) this should be a “wake-up call”


The times we live in seems to match up with 2 Timothy 3:1-9 (NIV)
But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.
People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive,
disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy,
without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,
treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God--
having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.
They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women,
who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires,
always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth.
Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truth--men of depraved minds,
who, s far as the faith is concerned, are rejected.
But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.”

2 Timothy 3:1-9 (NIV)

So, what is our part as believers in – and followers of – Jesus Christ, the Son of God?
Are we not to be bold witnesses for Christ, even if it could result in abuse, violence, or even death?

Great Commission:

Jesus said to his followers, “Go everywhere in the world, and tell the Good News to everyone.
Anyone who believes and is baptized will be saved, but anyone who does not believe will be punished.

Mark 16:15-16 (NCV)

The time is short…but the consequences are eternal.
