READ Joshua 24:15
The single greatest privilege we have in life is to know Jesus Christ as our personal Savior. The second greatest privilege we have in life is to serve Jesus Christ as Lord of our lives.
We come to Him as a result of His divine invitation ( Rom. 10:13). We serve Him as the result of His divine call, for He saves us for a purpose (John 15:16). The invitation is to “whosever.” The call is universal to all who choose to follow Christ and irrevocable (Rom. 11:29). But God, in His divine wisdom, would never call us to a service for which He does not equip us (Phil. 4:19).
The call of God is both general and specific but not to be confused with the command of God for all believers. One example of God’s universal command for all believers is that to be “holy and I am Holy.”
(1 Peter 1:16). Another is to “walk worthy of our calling” (Ephesians 4:1) and probably the most well known is that of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19-20).
Your call must not be taken lightly for it is a high calling (Philippians 3:14) therefore it must be a high priority. Your call is very special to God ( Romans 8:30).
The specific or personal calls simply are examples of the diversity of the body of Christ and the necessity of that diversity (Ephesians 4:16). The call of God may take you around the world or next door or both. The type of call and related giftedness is the prerogative of a Holy God.
Our commitment to God’s call is the result of the fact that “we are not our own, we are bought with a price” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).
Father, like Joshua, I desire that my LOVE for You might be manifested by my service to You.
Your call must not be taken lightly, it’s a high calling and it must be a high priority. On #realmomentum app http://get.theapp.co/6bb7
