Happy Friday Everyone,
The scripture for today is Ephesians 4:1
Ephesians 4:1 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called.
Just as the apostle Paul admonished the Ephesians through the Holy Spirit, we are admonished by the same Spirit to follow the example of Christ. “To walk the Christian way means more than concern about separate acts of outward conduct; it relates to an inner condition and attitude that provides the motive force behind the acts.” The SDA Bible Commentary, Vol. 6, p. 1021
Our walk begins in our hearts. It is there where the decisions are made to live or not live for Jesus. It is there where we surrender our all to the Master or determine to go our own way. To walk worthy of our calling requires total surrender to the will of God; anything less will lead to failure.
“Those who profess to be Christians, but do not follow in the footsteps of Christ, make of none effect His words and obscure the plan of salvation. By their spirit and deportment they virtually say, “Jesus, in Your day You did not understand as well as we do in our day, that man can serve God and mammon.” These professors of religion claim to keep the law of God, but they do not keep it. Oh, what would the standard of true manhood have become had it been left in the hands of man! God has lifted His own standard—the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus; and the experience that follows complete surrender to God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. Ellen White, Reflecting Christ, p. 65
We have been called by God; let us walk with God in all things.
God bless you as you continue in His service.
