SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 01/29- “Living A Life Worthy Of Our High Calling!” (Ephesians 4:1-3)
Premise Question: Is it possible to fulfill Papa God’s calling upon our lives, by living and serving The LORD honorably and faithfully, and in the process, to achieve worthwhile success and the favor of The LORD, without the presence of His Godly characteristics, values and qualities of humility, gentleness, meekness, being forbearing, tolerant and long suffering with others, as well as, showing consideration towards them, with a constant effort, on our part, of striving and aiming for harmony and tranquility?
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. Always be humble and gentle. Be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of your love. Make every effort to keep yourselves united in the Spirit, binding yourselves together with peace. (Ephesians 4:1-3 NLT)
I Paul, am presently being held captive, as a prisoner, because of the ministry and high calling of Papa God upon my life. It is therefore, for this reason and at this very moment, that I urgently plead with you to live your life in such a way, that it will be seen and recognized by Papa God, as being honorable and worthy of the high calling He has placed upon your life. I exhort you to always show deferential respect towards others, being amiable, agreeable, gentle and kind. Also, choose to be calm and composed, ever forbearing and tolerant with others, as you make it a common practice of overlooking the faults in others. And, in all of this, do it because of your great undying and unfailing love for Papa God and others. Finally, with due diligence and effort, earnestly strive to keep a perpetual state of harmonious tranquil comfort and peace amongst you. (Ephesians 4:1-3 PDCP)
Bottom Line: In a word, NOPE! For without the presence of Godly characteristics, qualities and values, in our lives, it is entirely impossible to live, in such a way, manner or fashion, that would be counted worthy and recognized favorably, by The LORD, as achieving success in fulfilling the high calling that He has placed placed upon each one of us, in this life. (Ephesians 2:10) The calling of Papa God, on our lives, should never be looked upon, as being a great career move, wonderful occupation, an exciting vocation, or desirable profession or a great and wonderful job to pursue. But, should always be approached with great gravity and should never be entered into lightly, as it must be accepted, as being from The LORD, with humility and gratitude, and as being your life’s work, your mission and ultimate pursuit and ambition in and for this life. The calling of The LORD comes with a personal TAG from Him, that with His help, we are to develop and grow up into, by fully maturing. The TAG is: Talents, Abilities and Gifts, conferred upon us, by Him, that enables and empowers us to accomplish all that our calling may entail. One more thing, it should never be our aim, ambition or intention, to climb the proverbial “corporate ladder,” while serving and carrying out the high calling that Papa God has placed upon our lives!
