The call

The call

Acts 19: 13 “Some Jews who went around driving out evil spirits tried to invoke the name of the Lord Jesus over those who were demon-possessed. They would say, ‘In the name of the Jesus whom Paul preaches, I command you to come out.’

In this melting pot of Jewish occult and magical practices we are introduced to a group of itinerant exorcists. Though the Jews held to the abomination of magic by God in Deuteronomy 18, they also had many examples of their forefathers for example, Moses, who was able to match and surpass the magic of the Egyptians.

The call to Jesus is a call to a relationship not a ritual.

The call cannot bypass the caller, Jesus works through those who call not outside them.

The call to Jesus to act will not result in the glory being taken from Him or even shared with Him.

The call to Jesus cannot come through the filter of another’s experience of Him.

The call to Jesus is a call of surrender, it will not strengthen your popularity and make you successful.
