Let each one remain in the same calling in which He was called. 1 Corinthians 7:20 NKJV
When we received Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior we became born again citizens of heaven. This world is not our true home. God calls us to be a holy. He calls us to come out of the world and be separate from the world even though we must live in the world!
Jesus does not take us immediately into the presence of the Father when we are saved.
And yet we are not to be conformed to the world even though God leaves in the world.
One day The Father will completely transform His creation. It will no longer exist in a fallen state. There will be a new heaven and a new earth. They will exist in total perfection!
Our transformed lives are to be examples of the transformation God will bring to His creation. We are to be examples of the transformation Jesus wants to accomplish in the lives of our unsaved family members, friends, and neighbors!
God met us right where we were when He saved us. Some of us were drug addicts or alcoholics. Others were seeking money and recognition. Some of us were good moral people but lived in a state of spiritual bankruptcy.
Jesus blessed us with spiritual gifts so He can use us to save others.
If you work at a bank God does not want you to be a Christian on the weekends. Jesus wants you to apply the Word of God to your life at work. Jesus wants to use you at work. The Lord wants to minister to your co-workers and customers through you!
Jesus wants us to reflect His character everywhere we go. God the Holy Spirit lives in us. The Lord wants us to yield our lives to Him so He can live out His life though us!
God loves you. One day you will live with Him in holy perfection. You will experience His perfect love. You will love Him perfectly. Until then we must continue living in this imperfect world for the glory and honor of our heavenly Father.
God wants us to reflect holiness in everything we do. We can only do that if we love Jesus enough to trust Him with our lives.
Trust Jesus to prepare the way for you to serve Him. Trust Him to work in you and through you everywhere you go!
Trust Jesus to prepare your true home for you. Jesus will lead you to His banqueting table. His banner over you will always be love.
Serve God right where you are today with what you have today. Jesus will make all the preparations necessary for you to serve Him in the beauty of holiness throughout eternity!
