Lord knows that I’m not in chains confined to one location like Paul, but I feel like Paul, in that I’m a prisoner for serving the Lord. I too am begging my fellow believers. It’s time believers. God called us. He selected us. We are His elect. He chose us just because He wanted to. But are we leading lives worthy of His calling and election?
Imagine that when you walk around today that there is a halo over your head. In neon letters above your halo are the words “God’s Elect.” Because you were predestined, there is a calling to which you were predestined too. But God hasn’t been able to use you in your fullest capacity because you aren’t leading a life worthy of your calling.
There is nothing you’re doing and focusing on that’s more important than your calling. There is no fleshly desire that you have such as sex, pornography, adultery, fornication, money, or fame that takes precedence over the life to which God called you to live. There is no human or demon that should be able to keep you from living the life to which God called you. Start today. Live a life worthy of the two words in neon lights above your head. You are God’s elect. When people see you do they see Him? Dr.J.
Ephesians 4:1 NLT “Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God.”
