Changes Four Things

“I press on toward the goal for the prize of
the upward call of God in Christ Jesus”

(Philippians 3:14)

Introduction: Conversion is what happens in reaction to the call of the gospel (2 Thess. 2:14). But, most do not understand “the upward call” (Heb. 3:1; Eph. 4:1; 1 Thess. 2:12; 2 Thess. 2:14; 1 Pet. 2:9). Conversion always occurs in connection with the upward call.

Conclusion: The purpose of this lesson has been to clarify what conversion means. Once understood, in conjunction with the high call of God in Christ Jesus (Phil. 3:14)—appreciation for the life will follow. Understanding precedes appreciation. But, where there is little appreciation for the upward call, there will be little or no change toward life itself.
