January 18 Compelled to Serve

Walk worthy of the calling with which you were called.

Ephesians 4:1

Do you have any idea of what a high calling it is to serve Christ?

Paul said, “We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them” (Eph. 2:10). He also said, “I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called” (Eph. 4:1).

In ancient times, a victor at the Olympic Games once asked, “Spartan, what will you gain by this victory?” He replied, “I, sir, shall have the honor to fight on the front line for my king.” May that be your response to the call of your King.[1]
