Commentary By: Gordon King
Calling all Christians! The good LORD God Almighty is calling all Christians to repentance, He is calling us to turn from sin, to follow Him and not the ways of the world!
The Lord is speaking to us, but are we listening? He is calling us out of the world, because we are not of this world!
He is calling us because our time is short, the world is in spiritual darkness, and there is a spiritual famine in the land among believers. There is a rift between those who are spiritually sound with God and those who are “Luke Warm”, a division in the body of Christ!
How many believers do you know of who don’t even know what their calling from God is? How many believers who only really even think about God once a week when they attend church? How many believers who deny the power of God in their life, who do not seek God in all things, who fail to depend upon our Lord for all of their needs?
The world is in turmoil, the darkness is closing in, and the light of Christ is shining through the darkness!
We are the light of the world, we as the body of Christ are being presented as the hope of the world, leading the way for the lost to come to repentance!
Ours is to show the world that there is a better way, that there is only one way to Heaven, one way to salvation, one way to escape eternal destruction in Hell!
We all have a calling from God, in fact more than one. Ours is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ, but also help those in need, to perform God’s will on earth. Know your calling and perform it to the best of your ability as God has equipped you to do!
When we are walking with God, when we are walking in the spirit, then we will know God’s will in our life, we will hear from God, we will know His voice, and we will allow Him to lead us through the darkness!
It is not merely enough for us to be saved, but to listen to God and be obedient to Him! We are one with Christ and Christ is one with us. We are to put down our life for Him, to pick up our cross and follow Him on a daily basis. Walking in the spirit, conforming to His will, walking with God!
It saddens me to think about just how many believers live a worldly life, at how many do not have a close relationship with God. And many times it takes a disaster to bring even believers to the point of despair, to bring us to our knees, to bring us back in a right relationship with God.
With that being said, there is a portion of the body of Christ that is walking closely with God, walking in the spirit, giving Him the praise and worship that He is worthy of, listening to His voice, following His lead! There is a revival of the Holy Spirit within the body of Christ!
Humble yourself before the Lord, repent of your sins, and seek an anointing of the Holy Spirit! Be filled with the Holy Spirit and not drunk with wine! Allow the workings of the Spirit to lead and guide you, to give you wisdom and understanding!
God bless my friends! Maranatha!
