~God Called~

Sorry for some many LotR/Hobbit related posts. Can't help it! I had to share my favorite quote from the new movie with you.

"I would take each and any one of these dwarves over an army from the Iron Hills. For when I called, they came. Loyalty, courage, honor, I could not ask for more then that."
- Thorin - The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
This quote reminds me of how God has called us. He accepts us not because we are perfect, but because when he called, we answered, and accepted him in our lives. And now he is free to work his power though us to a greater end.

"God, who set me apart from my mother’s womb and called me by his grace, was pleased to reveal his Son in me so that I might preach him among the Gentiles." - Galatians 1:15-16


  1. I love researching Types of Christ in literature. I didn't really see Thorin as one in the book, but maybe that was because the story was told through Bilbo's perspective and he didn't know Thorin's story well until later in life.

  2. I like that :)
