THE DIVINE CALLING

“We kept urging you to live the kind of life that pleases God, who calls you to share in his own Kingdom and glory”.

1 Thess 2:12 GNB

People who don’t believe in God feel that they are free to do whatever pleases them. They are answerable to no one but themselves. Some appear to get on all right. Others make a horrible mess of the whole thing, never achieving happiness or peace of mind. They spend much of their lives wishing that things had turned out differently.

No doubt the people who became the first believers in Thessalonica lived in that way until they heard the Good News of Jesus and the mighty acts of God from the preaching of Paul, Silas and Timothy.

They learnt that there was a God, a sovereign Lord God, who had acted decisively in sending Jesus Christ for their salvation. He loved them and he had a claim upon their lives. He called them every bit as much as he had called Abraham two thousand years earlier. But his call was not for them to go out and found a new nation as it had been with Abraham. It was to live the kind of love filled, and joy-drenched life that Jesus Christ had come to offer people. They had to forsake their sins and unbelief. And they were being called to put their trust in Jesus and discover life in its fullness.

This same call comes to everyone who believes in Jesus. It is a call to a new and better quality of life which you are challenged to live for the glory of God. He offers you the gift of his Holy Spirit to enable you to know his kind of life.

PRAYER THOUGHT

Lord, help me respond to your call and live your kind of life.

PRAYER OF INTERCESSION

Thank you, Lord for the wonder of the Advent and Christian season. Thank you for the lights and the decorations, the music and the special events, the giving and receiving of gifts, the sense that Christmas is “something different”. Fill me with wonder and joy in Christ. AMEN
