{Day 31} “He Who Calls You is Faithful…”

As we arrive at the end of this 31 Days to Better Understand our {God Given} Callings, I leave you with this truth:

We’re called to be faithful … to be obedient and to trust.

We’re called to glorify God … to know Him and to make Him known.

But not by our own strength or ability or understanding of our calling.

“Now may the God of peace himself sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.”

– 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 (ESV – emphasis added)

{Day 25} Our Highest Calling

“In him we have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to the purpose of him who works all things according to the counsel of his will, so that we who were the first to hope in Christ might be to the praise of his glory.”

– Ephesians 1:11-12

Chosen before the foundation of the world (Ephesians 1:4) and created in God’s own image (Genesis 1:27), our highest calling is simply this:

to glorify God.

That we “might be to the praise of His glory.”
