I am Fred Myers the founder of For the Fathers Ministry, and this is Faith by the Numbers.
Count your way to wisdom in number three hundred twenty-four of this series, Fourteen Facts About Christian Calling.
If every Christian has a calling and every Christian will be judged on the fulfillment of their calling, why is it that many do not know the facts of a calling? Paul is clear that if we do not fulfill our calling we will suffer a loss. Paul adds that we cannot lose our salvation, and he then tells us there is a reward for faithful fulfillment.
Fourteen Facts About Christian Calling:
- There are a variety of callings for service in God’s kingdom.
- The callings of God are irrevocable.
