He has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and Grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. 2 TIMOTHY 1:9 The first scripture I look at this morning follows the same path Pastor Gerhard was talking about yesterday. The question today is why don’t we share our holy calling? Dr. I.H Marshall writes, “Shame is a feeling which leads to action which hides witness.” We all are called from a dark place. In that dark place a life without God. But just as God created us when we didn’t deserve it, God saved us when we didn’t deserve it. All because of Grace. What an incredible God. As I get to know him, (relationship) I see there is nothing I did to earn it. I am grateful for that creation and salvation that I desire to live a holy life. And as I struggle to live a holy life, (it is not easy folks) I pray that the world around me will see something (God) worth pursuing. I am so grateful.
