Worthy Of His Call


“So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do.”
II Thessalonians 1:11 (NLT)

This is one of those passages that really help you focus in on what’s important. What is my purpose? Why was I born? What possible significance can my life be? All these are answered in this short passage. Here we see a prayer we can pray for our life. “Oh Almighty, loving God, please enable me to live a life worthy of Your call.” And He has already equipped us to do this. In another passage Paul tells us that the fruit, or the result of living in the power of the Holy Spirit, is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Can you imagine the life we would live today, if we would ask God to produce that fruit in our life? That would be worthy of His calling on our life! Then God would give us power to do all that our faith prompts us to do. Why? Because our faith would produce desires in line with the fruit of the Spirit. Paul then assures us that the result of living this way is that the name of Jesus will be honored. So how do we know this can happen? How can we possibly think that this passage is meant for us? Because, Paul concludes this passage with this assurance, “This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord Jesus Christ.” His grace gives you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do!

Father, help me today to be filled with Your Holy Spirit, to bear the fruit of Your Spirit in my life. Help me live this day worthy of Your call. Thank You for Your grace and may Your power accomplish all the good things that You prompt in my heart through faith.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
