Suggested Bible Readings

Bible Passages for Stepping Forward

As you consider your calling, sift the scriptures – they are full of people hearing or struggling to hear God’s call – which often comes to the most unlikely people, in the most unexpected ways!

Suggestions for exploring your calling through Bible study…

The Gospels: why not take a gospel and explore how Jesus discerned his call and how others heard or didn’t hear his call for them?

Character study: Moses, Ruth, David, Jeremiah, Paul – how did they hear God? What helped, what got in the way?
