At the 1985 CBU National Leadership Conference, Jamie talks about the call of God. There is a difference between what we are called to do and what we are gifted to do, Jamie says. Our call is to be men and women of God and to obey God’s direction for our lives.
We are a chosen people, and the reason Jesus came to earth was to show us who we are and to call us out of darkness, into His wonderful light. To be chosen by God means to be controlled by God, it mean He is on the throne of our lives.
Jonah is a great example of how we can eith handle or mishandle the call of God on our life.
Jamie states that the mission of the Christian is to kiss frogs, to bring into being, out of the unlikely, that which God has ordained in others. He then moves into several key lessons from Habakkuk and the freedom we have in trusting God. For God’s people there is always a glorious future.
