We are destined for distinct divine Callings; convicted towards Holiness and Service; demanded to display GOOD CHARACTER that upholds our lives in Christ and ministry. And as we serve to fulfill the great commission, we are to do it confidently; therefore, let our lives exhibit the splendor and marvelous LIGHT that is in us through Christ Jesus in order to draw all mankind in to salvation Worldwide.
CALLING: God called us out of the world to be his people by the established personal relationship that we have with him. He calls us also to do specific assignments in the kingdom using the unique and special spiritual gifts, abilities and talents that He bestowed in us. Therefore, we are called to live a life of holiness and righteousness since we are a reflection of Gods marvelous LIGHT through his son Jesus Christ thus demanding us living a “life of light” that displays Gods glory to all His creation (2Peter 2:9-10; 1Corinthians 12:1-30; Romans 11:29; 1Corinthians 1:26; Ephesians 4:1; 2Peter 1:10; 2Timothy 1:9).
CONVICTION: God enables us to live holy lives through the conviction of the Holy Spirit towards sin and guiding us to our mission in life as Co-workers with Christ Jesus. Whenever we sin therefore, God convicts us to repentance and to total submission to his word such that we walk and live-in obedience according to his spiritual standards. God also convicts us towards ministry thus empowering us to serve one another according to His spiritual gifts embedded in us; therefore, we are convicted towards holiness and servant hood (John16:8; 1Thessolonians 1:5; Hebrews 11:1; Jude 1:15).
CHARACTER: Since we are called to display Gods LIGHT and GLORY to the crooked world, we are mandated to have good character traits hence eliminating all corruptible character or sin and its fruits by adopting godly character. By doing so, we shall be in position to live out our heavenly calling and to follow our godly conviction towards our divine purpose on earth. Our character defines who we really are even before we mention a word to anyone. Therefore, we are cautioned to PUT OFF our old self and PUT ON our new self in Christ Jesus (Colossians 3:1-17; Galatians 5:16-26; Romans 5:4; John 8:44; John 8:44; Hebrews 6:17; Matthew 5:114-16; Acts 13:47; Romans 13:12).
CONFIDENCE: Once our identity is defined in Christ Jesus then our confidence is instilled in Him and therefore “we can do all things through Christ that strengthens us”. This implies that we do not live by our own strength but by God’s strength, so whatever task we are given to do, we will do it boldly and confidently beating all forces of fear and shame. We are called to have dominion and to display Gods splendor in our character and service to all mankind (Ephesians 3:12; Job 4:6; 2Thessolonians 3:4; 1John 4:17; Hebrews 3:6, 4:16 & 10:19).
