The Lord Calls
May 26, 2019
The Lord is inviting us each day to see his calling at work. In today’s readings from Acts 16:9-15 and John 5:1-9, we receive two very different examples of responding to God’s call. Paul and Lydia immediately respond to the Lord’s calling, but the man at the Pool of Bethesda responds in a most unexpected way. He stalls, he grumbles, and even avoids really answering Jesus question. Yet, in each case the Lord passionately pursues each one with His love and grace. What’s standing the way of hearing and heeding God’s call in our lives?
