Joel 2:32 NIV 2011
And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, even among the survivors whom the Lord calls.
Joel, another prophet of God, was called to warn the people of Judah. He reminded God’s people to worship Him and pray by calling on the name of the Lord. Genesis 4:26b, “At that time people began to call on the name of the Lord.” Only through salvation people are delivered from God’s wrath. Calling on the name of the Lord is what God desires of His people. 2 Peter 3:9, “God is not willing that any should perish,” Those who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.
My friend who suffered a debilitating stroke more than three years ago sent me a text last week. She wanted to see me to share God’s Word together and enjoy Christian fellowship. I prayed, waited and now I’m off. What does God do for any that have not called on His name? He patiently waits for them. The blessings received by those who do decide to call on the name of the Lord, I’ve found, are never ending. I am thankful daily I was saved when I decided to call on Name of the Lord.
How will we share Him with those that need to call on the name of the Lord for salvation?
Saved and sharing Jesus together,
