Vocational Fellowship

by T. Austin-Sparks

Recorded Apr 1960

"Fellowship with God. That is a deep, and inexhaustible matter. Fellowship with God. A very great deal of weakness, confusion and failure is traceable to one basic defect: it is failure to recognise the real nature of God’s call to any life, to any instrument. The real nature of God’s call to you, to me, either individually or collectively, is a call into fellowship with Himself. We have other ideas about what it is to be a Christian, to "come to the Lord", however we may put it, but the fundamental thing about any call of God to any life, to any instrument, His choice of any vessel, the fundamental factor is this upon which everything else is based where He is concerned: fellowship with Himself."
