Gifts and Call of the Kingdom

Romans 11:29

For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.

Alexander Dowie was called to proclaim the gospel at age seven. He said in his biography that the call never left him. Before the call come the gifts. Without the gifts the call is impossible. Without the call the gifts become self-indulgent.

The church needs people with the gifts and call of God to step out in faith to minister the love of God to others.

Ephesians 4:7-8

But grace was given to each one of us according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore it says,
“When he ascended on high he led a host of captives,
and he gave gifts to men.”

The gifts have been given. The calling is to preach the Gospel (Matthew 28:18-20) and has never been rescinded. It is up to us, the church, to use the gifts and fulfil the call to proclaim the gospel and see others enter the kingdom of God.
