The Highest Calling

Our new pastor, Brandon Korter and his family have arrived from Michigan. Brandon and his wife Rosalba have a daughter Iriana. The Korters enjoy the outdoors, hiking, camping, and horses. Here is the first sermon Pastor Korter preached at Bellingham Seventh-day Adventist church this past Sabbath.

The Highest Calling

What does it mean to receive the Highest Calling or Purpose in Life? People are filled with worry, fear, and sadness. Jesus is coming soon. Christ has given us the Highest Calling. The Devil does not want people to receive the Highest Calling. We can accomplish great things for Jesus. Look at what two older men did thousands of years ago.

Daniel was a prophet and wrote the Book of Daniel in the Bible when he was 75 years old. John was 80 when he wrote the Book of Revelation on Patmos while in exile. We all should give ourselves to Jesus fully and ask how can He use us to reach the lost and fearful.

Read Isaiah 42:6-7
I, the LORD, have called You in righteousness,
      And will hold Your hand;
      I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people,
      As a light to the Gentiles,
       7 To open blind eyes,
      To bring out prisoners from the prison,
      Those who sit in darkness from the prison house.

Incredible Grace that God has given us. God is asking us to Shine Our Light for His Church. We are the Church (all of us people, not the building). Jesus is saying: “I will hold your hand”.

General McArthur declared in the Philippines during WWII: “I will return”. Jesus also will.

Ships follow Light from the Lighthouse. People in our local community pass by and thousands are looking for the light. The Devil has light all be it only temporary. God’s light never goes out. The Devil’s light will go out on Judgement Day. The Devil will try to attack people who are in the Lighthouse (Church). We have to spend time everyday in prayer with Jesus to keep the Light. When we spend time with Jesus, we will be concerned for the lost. The Devil hates the Church.

God wants us to be on guard. We can be a problem or the solution. The Church has problems. Always has and always will until Christ returns. The Church is a theatre of God’s Grace. We as Christians have the Highest Calling to reach lost people for Christ. Your heart will experience incredible love and grace when you help introduce someone to Jesus.

Read the Acts of the Apostles pages 11 and 12.
