For whom do I live my call, do I live for the fame and glory that people give me, or do I live for the glory that is from God.
Many Christian say that they are called by God but do not follow the example of Jesus. When it comes to the trial and tribulation, that Jesus say that we would have; we back up and say that it Satan. How will you ever grow in God, if every little pain cause you to be troubled. He told us to deny ourselves and pick up our cross and follow Him.
Take the time to check yourself every now and then to see if your call is for you or for God. Pride is a smooth and gentle serpent that will quietly enter your life. Pride don't make a big fanfare when he comes in. A few, you did a great job and stir up some AMen's and your head began to get larger. A few times that your pastor calls you name out for something that you have done for him. Then you are at a place where you are the only one that can do it.
God has called us to reach out to the poor and needy. He has called us to take care of the widows and orphan children. He never said if they have grown children, you don't do it. Or that social security give them enough money to surive.
If you have a call that is from God, ask youself if you aren't taking care of His business; repent now. God has call the laborer to labor in the hot sun. Go to the places that no one else would go. Love the unloveable. Have faith when the situation seem impossible. For you know that He loved you so much that He gave His Son, so that you would have a right to enternal life.
For whom do I live my call? I live my call for God, for His Holy Spirit leads and guide me daily.
Our God is love and with that love he correct us. No more pain will we go through than Jesus did when He went to the Cross for us. He knew no sin but for us our sin was nail to the Cross. Have faith in God always for without faith you cannot no matter how much you try please Him.
In closing I say live the call that God has call you to be. It may not in the pulpit, or lead in the choir; but to give Him glory through your work. It may not be type of work that anyone else will say anything about; but whom are you there to glorify, you or God.
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
