Key Verse: John 10:27 Big Idea: God knows us by name and calls to us, so we can listen for His voice. Bible Basis: 1 Samuel 2-3 God had a plan and a purpose for Samuel. He called Him to lead and to serve. You may not hear the audible voice of God the way Samuel did – but He is calling you, too. He has a plan and a purpose for you. He intends to use the gifts, abilities and passions He’s given you for His glory and the good of others. And He has a plan and purpose for your children. He created them with a vision for their lives. Isn’t that amazing? He calls each of us by name – with a plan and for a purpose. God has a plan and a purpose for you. Do you know that? I mean, really. Do you know that? Do you know that you were created by an intentional God who knows you better than you know yourself? If you don’t know why you were created, talk to Him about that this week. You were created on purpose and the world needs you to be all that He created you to be.
