Romans 1:1-7

Hear the Call

By Lois Parker Edstrom

Has your teacher ever asked for your help? How about your mom or dad asking you to help with chores

around the house? What are some of the projects that have needed your attention? What have you been

asked to do to help out?


Being asked to help is an honor because the person asking for your help believes that you have the

ability to do what is needed. As you help others, you will discover ways to use your special talents.

And, we all have talents!
In the Bible Paul tells us that he was called by God to be an apostle. An apostle is a missionary who

tells others about Jesus Christ. Paul used his talent as a speaker and a writer to tell others about

the love of Jesus. That became his purpose in life.
Paul tells us that God calls all of us. There is something special for each one of us to do.Paul tells

us that we “are also called to belong to Jesus Christ” (1:6) which means that each one of us is invited

to be a part of the Christian family. Our Christian family needs the special talents that each one of

us has. We just need to say, “Yes, I’ll help. What may I do?”
