T9851E/T9915 Receiving the Call
Being called requires somebody to call you, someone has to call you into position. Now think about your job, you have a job. Somebody called you. Who was it? Was it man? Was there some man that called you to this job and you do it? What called you to do it? Why'd you accept the calling? How about a calling from Heaven? Ever considered a calling from Heaven?
Now let's take some of the apostles. Remember Peter and Andrew? They were called and they were called not of men, but of Jesus Christ. And of course, Jesus Christ was not called because He was from the beginning. If you're called by Jesus Christ then you are called from the beginning - you are called from Heaven, you are actually called by God the Father.
