Sabbath School: 26 April 2015

Audio from the Sabbath School class of 26 April 2015 is available here.

In this class we discuss principles that are necessary for us to understand and cultivate if we are to maintain, preserve, and live according to the doctrine of vocation.

First, we must maintain the boundaries of the several estates and preserve the distinct and several callings within each estate. We noted that Romans 12.14-13.10 shows the delineation of separate callings within the social-civil estate and then calls us to live according to the Law of Love.

This leads to the second principle, that we must recognise the way our debt of ‘love to neighbour’ forms our service to Christ in our ordinary callings. That is, our calling in service to Christ is to walk according to God’s commands in loving one another because ‘love is the fulfillment of the law.’

Third, to avoid the modern evangelical tendency toward neo-monasticism and neo-clericalism, we must understand, value, and preserve the callings of the ecclesiastical estate, understanding how those callings equip us for our vocation in the other estates.
