A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the LORD ; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
“You would not have called to me unless I had been calling to you,” said the Lion.
C.S. Lewis in The Silver Chair
We think of our “calling” as an almost mystical sense of what we are meant to do or become. God calls us by name and dwells with us and among us. It is an irresistible invitation to share with others. So we are called to calling.
Our voices cry out in loneliness, in fear, in gratitude, in joy.
We have heard His voice and become His echo on earth.
Since no man is excluded from calling upon God the gate of salvation is open to all. There is nothing else to hinder us from entering, but our own unbelief.
