Called and Accountable: Discovering Your Place in God's Eternal Purpose

Front Cover
New Hope Publishers, 2007 - Religion - 222 pages
Every believer is called by God, and His call is life-transforming.
When this truth grips a person's heart, he or she is never the same again. Immediately there comes into that life a deep sense of meaning and purpose and a devoted sense of accountability to God. Authors Henry Blackaby and Norman Blackaby lead men and women to explore the life-transforming, world-changing call that God gives every follower of Christ. Just as He did throughout the Bible, God is still calling His people, at this very hour, to accomplish His eternal purposes in redeeming the lost. God has a unique plan for each of His followers to be a part of His mission.
Called and Accountable thoughtfully explores these questions:
  • Why does God call us?
  • What is a call?
  • Who are the called?
  • How am I called?
  • When am I called?
  • How do I live out the call?
