Live Worthy of Your Calling
“I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love.”
My friend Linnae invited us to read Ephesians with her this week so I thought I would jump in.
This scripture is one of those that I know and can probably recite, and yet today I let it sink a little deeper.
“live worthy of the calling you have received”
That sounds like a pretty big statement. What does living up to my calling look like? I guess I first need to make sure I understand the calling God has on my life. And if God has given me a calling, which He claims that he has, what does it mean to live up to that?
I think the next verse gives us a few suggestions:
- completely humble (as if humble weren’t enough, it’s emphasized by the word “completely”)
- bearing with one another in love
Ok, I think I already have three strikes!
What’s the calling God has on your life? What does it mean for you to live worthy of your calling?
