When God Calls

Then the LORD called yet again, "Samuel!" So Samuel arose and went to Eli, and said, "Here I am, for you called me." He answered, "I did not call, my son; lie down again." (1 Samuel 3:6)

  • A young boy named Samuel heard his name being called.

  • He did not yet know the Lord, nor was the word of the Lord yet revealed to him.

  • So the temple priest Eli had to help him understand who was calling him.

  • God then revealed His plan for Samuel’s life.

  • The Lord has a plan for us as well.

  • And He calls to our hearts: “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28).

  • That is God’s call to us to receive the gift of His salvation, rest, and peace.

  • The Savior is calling us to come to Him.

  • The Lord Jesus Christ calls the restless ones to find their rest in Him.
