The same God who called so many in the history of the people of Israel
to journey to him, and with him, calls us. The same God who in Jesus
called so many to be his followers, and to bear his presence in the world
after Jesus' death and resurrection, calls us. He calls us through the
Son, in the power of the Spirit, to see and know his will for the world.
And he calls us to see and know his will for ourselves. Discernment for
us, therefore, involves listening for more than a settled interior resolve
- listening for more than a clarity within our own conscious powers for
what we should do. It involves listening, seeing, hearing, and knowing
what we are to do and where we are to go as a result of God's leading and
direction in our lives.
