God's Call Came 93

Chosen in the Womb

Baby in WombThe Lord said to the prophet Jeremiah in Jeremiah 1.5, "I chose you before I gave you life, and before you were born I selected you to be a prophet to the nations." Like Jeremiah, God knows each one of us intimately. Our lives are an open book in His sight. God's call came to Jeremiah while he was in the womb, even before! God then set him apart as a prophet. The Lord consecrated him and made him holy for his service to the nations.✞

C. T. Studd's Call

At the age of fifty-three, the Lord called C. T. Studd (1860-1931 AD) a famous cricketer in his day to go to Africa as a missionary. He was in poor health, but leaving his wife behind he went out in full reliance on the promises of God. His answer to all who questioned the wisdom of his action was found on a postcard on his desk, "If Jesus Christ be God and died for me, then no sacrifice can be too great for me to make for Him." Because God knows us intimately and has consecrated us, he can therefore appoint us to a call as he did C. T. Studd and Jeremiah both of whom he selected to be "a prophet to the nations."
