Day Twenty-One: The Calling
“Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, 9 who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,” –2 Timothy 1:8-9 (NKJV; BibleGateway.com)
29 “For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable.” — Romans 11:29 (NKJV; BibleGateway.com)
“I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, 2 with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, 3 endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” –Ephesians 4:1-5 (NKJV; BibleGateway.com)
God is calling our name. Can you hear Him? He’s calling us to follow Him. He’s calling us to read His Word and apply it to our lives. He’s calling us to use our gifts and talents to lead other people to Christ. He’s calling us to prayer. He’s calling us to love one another. He’s calling us to forgive the unforgiveable. He’s calling us to reach out to the broken. He’s calling us to break out of our status of “comfortable” and into a deeper place with Him. At every place in our story, He is calling us closer to Him. Let’s choose to go with Him today.
It takes faith. It takes abandon.
Pray and ask God to show you where He is calling you.
I promise you will never be the same.
What is God calling you to this day?
