1 KINGS 19:15-21
What difference, if any, does the call itself make for the work you’re about to begin? The Galatians know they’ve been called by God, and given Elijah’s fame as the LORD’s prophet in Israel, surely Elisha knows who is truly throwing the cloak over his shoulder. And as Jesus is responding to those who would follow him, for the most part people seem to know who is teaching and working through this rabbi – hence their interest in following him. It is a more modern question to need to ask, how do I know if it’s God who is calling me? The question that engages and animates scripture has more to do with how and to what we are being called. God is calling you. What kind of ears do you have?
