My background helped me to be in the Word of God daily, yet I saw little continuity in the segmented stories of God’s people. The call of God on Abram, and the words spoken to Moses of “a priestly nation” (Ex 19) certainly do have a related message. Both Jonah and Daniel lived out the call of God among a foreign people, albeit with different attitudes. Kingdom theology brings the candidate into understanding the mission purpose of God throughout the Bible. Themes of the Old Testament and their unfulfilled purposes bring us to appreciate the fullness that has come through the Messiah and is passed to us in our present day. The call of God upon our lives is his heart throughout the ages and does not simply begin with the Great Commission.
