God does not call on everyone.
I write about being called on by God because I realize the seriousness of the call. The word of God even tells us not everyone is chosen by God. I think sometimes we hear that God chose us for a special purpose but do not realize how special this is. Recently I discovered what it looks like to be called on and set apart.
A few days ago I sat down with my Brother to talk about his views on God. He revealed to me that he is an atheist. We have always had different views on the afterlife but this conversation was new for both of us. As the older sibling I felt maybe I have not done enough to show the love of Jesus to my own Brother.
As a Christian I want to see everyone in heaven, especially my own family. I am aware that will not be the case but it will not stop me from wanting everyone to accept Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord. It especially pains me to know I will not see people like my Brother there.
It is extremely hard to accept the fact that God has not chosen my brother who is my own flesh and blood into the Kingdom. That is the reality that we all live with today! It may not be a sibling for you but maybe it will be a parent, a spouse, or a friend.
Scripture tells us that God has called on us Christians to be a testimony of His word. We are also set apart from people of the world in order to stand out and stand up for the Kingdom of God.
In life we may see households split over the belief in God. However, He calls us to speak boldly and unashamed during these times. He gives us strength to speak the truth even when others do not believe.
You are chosen for a special purpose. God picked YOU out specifically and knows you by name, He chose how you would look, and the personality you have today. You are HIS idea, HIS child, and HIS heir.
Not everyone can claim all these titles. As a Christian you have been hand picked by the Creator of all things to be a reflection of His truth!
“They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.”
