The Two Dimensions of the Call of God

October 23rd, 2021 · by Tom Stuart · Relationship with God

After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! . . .“Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after this.” Revelation 4:1 ESV

There are two mutually proportionate dimensions to the call of God – being called higher into His purposes (sharing in His power) while also being called deeper into His passion (sharing in His suffering).

You cannot go higher without going deeper. The Apostle Paul confirms this in writing that the path to sharing in the power of Christ’s resurrection requires “participation in His sufferings, becoming like Him in His death.” (Phil. 3:10)

You have called me higher, You have called me deeper,

And I will go where You lead me, Lord, Where You lead me.

And I will be Yours, I will be Yours for all my life.

So let Your mercy, Light the path before me.

    Tom, your insight resonates with me as the Lord has been showing me in the midst of some hard situations, that He reveals His ❤ to us in our pain and suffering.
