“THE CALLING”

first

When God calls a person to the service of his kingdom, it is an honor to do what he asks of us. “That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory. For this cause also thank we God without ceasing, because, when ye received the word of God which ye heard of us,ye received it not as the word of men, but as it is truth, the word of God, which effectually worketh also in you that believe”.(1 Thessalonians 2:12,13).

 
    When we come to the end of ourselves by trying desperately to solve our own problems and not rely solely on God, nothing works out no matter how hard we try. It is when we turn to the Living God in the lowest times of our life and are as alone as in a wilderness. “Even every one that is called by my name: for I have created him for my glory, I have formed him; yea, I have made him. Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God. Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it?”.(Isaiah 43:7,10-13).
 
    We are called to holiness and when we are born again the Holy Spirit that we receive causes us to no longer speak as the world does for the former life we live is now over and are changed into a vessel for the service of the Lord.We now speak the words God places within our hearts and minds. “But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. And if ye call on the Father, who without respect of persons judgeth according to every man’s work, pass the time of your sojourning here in fear: Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers; But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot. Who verily was foreordained before the foundation of the world, but was manifest in these last times for you”.(1 Peter 1:15-20).
 
    The Holy Spirit keeps us in remembrance for the service of God, and it is a high calling to of been chosen to do the will of our Father in heaven. May we be found worthy in fulfilling the call most important that not many are chosen for, because many are called but few are chosen. “I press toward the mark for the prize (gift) of the high calling of God in jesus Christ. Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you”.
 (Philippians 3:14,15)………(Matthew 20:16).
