2 Pet 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.
Uche knew that he had the calling of God upon his life. But he was not sure of what it was and didn’t care much about it. He, therefore, lived as if he had no calling. He wasn’t careful to walk in the divine nature and please God in all respects because he didn’t live with the consciousness of God’s call upon his life. This was the reason it appeared he could never conquer his sins.
Everyone born again has been called by God into His divine kingdom. Our calling as children of God is for us to become saints; conformed to the image of Christ and walking in the divine nature.
Apart from this general calling, every Christian has a specific call to do the work of ministry. We are all ministers of the grace and life of God. Some have been called to minister to the body of Christ. These are the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers. Their primary job is to equip the saints for the work of the ministry (see Eph 4:11-12).
The remaining saints have been called to minister the reality and glory of God to the world. Some of them are empowered by God to build very large multinational companies, using kingdom principles, and having the agenda to be agents for the advancement of Christ’s kingdom. Others have smaller businesses or ventures. Some are in politics and governance, others in the medical field, or in academia, or anywhere they find decent jobs. All working as agents for the furtherance of the kingdom of God; establishing righteousness and exalting the name of Christ in their respective designations.
Go into today knowing that when you always live your life for the purpose of fulfilling God’s calling in the place He has placed you, you will be strong and never stumble into sin.
