2 Peter 1:10 (NET) Therefore, brothers and sisters, make every effort to be sure of your calling and election. For by doing this you will never stumble into sin.
Funsho observed the rate at which ministers of the gospel were stumbling and becoming slaves of mammon. Because of this, he entered into a season of waiting on the Lord because he wanted the Lord to show him the secret of not stumbling. It was as he was meditating on the word that the Holy Spirit reminded him of today’s Bible verse.
Today’s Bible verse admonishes us to make every effort to be sure of our calling and election. This happens in the place of examining ourselves regularly to be sure we are still in the faith.
You can ask yourself these questions regularly as you examine yourself in the Lord’s presence:
Do I love the Lord more today than when I first believed? Have I stopped doing my first works that demonstrated love for the Lord(eg evangelism)?
Do I pray more today or less than before? Do I spend time on the word more today than before?
Do I still love the brethren or has my love waxed cold over time?
Am I still fulfilling God’s unique call for my life?
Am I still growing in my knowledge of the Lord or have I become complacent?
These are some of the simple questions that answering would help us know if we are still on the straight and narrow path that leads to life.
Go into today remembering to regularly check your heart to be sure its affection is still on Christ and Christ alone. Make every effort to be sure of your calling and election.
