Today’s reading: Ephesians 4:1-3
We read in Ephesians 4:1-3:
1 I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, 2 with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, 3 endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
In the previous chapters of Ephesians, Paul explained what the Most High God did for us in order to give us eternal life. In Ephesians 4, Paul came to the conclusion by saying, “therefore.”
Since God has loved us and provided all that we need, the natural response for us is to walk worthy of our calling. When we fully understand what God has done for us, we respond with obedience and willingness to serve Him.
We don’t serve God so that we get His love and approval. We serve Him because God loved us first.
Now, how do you walk worthy of your calling? Paul mentioned that we should be humble, gentle, patient, loving, and instruments of unity. Those are important qualities of a true believer.
Walking worthy is a continuous action. It’s not a one-time act that you can fulfill in one day. Walking worthy is a lifetime commitment to Yahweh.
You can’t be worthy of your calling without being humble. For you to submit to God’s authority, you must get rid of pride.
Gentleness is not being weak, but rather, being able to control your strength and use it for the good of others. Patience is key as well in walking worthy of God’s calling. In life, we will certainly go through great troubles. Without patience, we would easily give up.
If you want to walk worthy of your calling, you must also bear with one another in love. We are called by God along with other believers.
There are no perfect servants of God. The time will come when we all commit mistakes and offend other followers of Yahshua. That’s why we must bear with one another in love and care.
You see, walking worthy of your calling is a lifestyle. It should be deeply ingrained in us that it defines who we are.
