Imagine God is calling you. Your phone is just ringing away and across the screen pops up those three great letters G–O–D. Now you know as GREAT as God is, if He’s calling you, He’s got something GOOD to say. Whether He has an awesome assignment for you, wants to give you some encouraging words, or just simply wants to say “I Love You,” you KNOW He’s got something to say that you need to hear! However, just as God’s calling, you’re right in the middle of a juicy conversation with your friends or perhaps you’re right in the middle of a good movie. You’re literally on the edge of your seat and you don’t want to miss a thing. So let me ask you, would you answer God’s call?!
Now I know some of you are thinking, “Come on Adrianna-its God; of course I would answer.” But oh let me remind you of times God has already called you and you didn’t answer or you hit ignore. God has already called ALL men, through His Word, to be HOLY. 1 Peter 1:15 (New King James Version) says, “But as He who CALLED you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, be holy, for I am holy.” Now every time we choose to sin or be unholy, we are essentially ignoring God’s call.
1 Peter 2:9 (NKJV) even says this about us, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who CALLED you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” You see, whether it be a specific assignment God has called us to do or just the calling that He has placed on all mankind to be a holy and set apart people, God is indeed CALLING us to walk with Him EVERYDAY!
I’ll be honest-there was a time in my life that I ignored God’s call; but my eyes are now open and those days of rebellion are long gone! I finally see that it’s an HONOR to have God call upon me for a specific task-when He could have called on ANYBODY else, He called on me! I encourage you to think this way too and make a vow today to answer every call that God puts in to you from here on out!
So again I ask you, would you answer God’s call?…….THINK ABOUT IT!
–To God be the Glory
