The Christian's Singular Calling
Francis A. Schaeffer

Increasingly I believe that after we are saved we have only one calling, and that is to show forth the existence and the character of God.  Since God is love and God is holy, it is our calling to act in such a way as to demonstrate the existence of God - in other words to be and to act in such a way as to show forth His love and His holiness simultaneously.  Further, I believe that the failure to show forth either of these is equally a perversion.  Of course, in one's own strength it is only possible to show forth either love or holiness.  But to show forth the holiness and love of God simultaneously requires much more.  It requires a moment by moment work of the Holy Spirit in a very practical way.
