“For you see your calling, brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called”. 1 Cor. 1:26
God calls very few wise, mighty, and noble people; so that leaves average everybody else, including you and me. So if that’s the case, He must be the one who empowers us. And I know He doesn’t make mistakes. He won’t call someone and then say “ooops. My bad.” He trusts that we will fulfill His purpose and equips us to get the job done. It’s a calling like no other because it involves souls and eternal destinations. If the knowledge of His saving grace is suppressed and hidden inside of us, what benefit is that to a lost and hurting world.
Maybe it’s just me, but I’m tired of just going through the motions. Punch in – punch out…. Same shoe, different day. Roll over the next Month on the calendar and still not moving forward… Let’s remember we are ALL called because of what we know of Him. We KNOW the Master of the Universe. We KNOW the redemptive work of Jesus and the Cross. The world doesn’t need more worldly bandaids, it needs Godly solutions. What if the called would stop ignoring the call and answer it?
