“Speak, for your servant is listening.” God called Samuel to be one of the towering figures in the O.T. He was priest, prophet, and judge. He ushers in a new age of the Monarchy and prophets. God calls us, too. It took three attempts before Samuel knew God was calling him. God calls us, too. Sometime, we hear His voice clearly but not so clearly at other times. But, we have to be open to God’s call and willing to answer that call, whatever it may be.
