“Therefore I, a prisoner for serving the Lord, beg you to lead a life worthy of your calling, for you have been called by God.“
Do you know that the walk is like an athlete on a racecourse? In the past, we’ve been taught that we will encounter diverse challenges on this Christian journey; but if we look unto Jesus Christ, the author and finisher of our faith, we will overcome. But how can we look up to Jesus Christ, or what is the proof that we are looking up to Jesus Christ? That is the question that today’s message will help us answer.
Today’s message is one topic we can treat for so many days, but I pray that God work wonders in the heart of everyone, no matter how brief the message is. Consistent living is simply about our daily walk as children of God. It is about knowing who we are, whom we are serving, and where we are going.
Knowing who we are: that we were once sinners, born and bred in sin, but God, in His infinite love and mercy, sent His son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. He saved us and made us joint heirs with Christ.
Knowing whom we are serving: knowing God personally—establishing a personal relationship with the Holy One.
Where we are going: knowing that this world is a temporal place for us; it is not our home. One day, we will all give account of our existence on earth.
The Christian walk is an exciting life exercise. In the opening text, we read how Paul admonished the Ephesians to lead a life worthy of their calling. That is what consistent living is about. That admonition is for us, the Christians, today.
“Remember, it is sin to know what you ought to do and then not do it.” James 4:17. Consistent living is not only about steering clear from sin but also doing good to those around you. If you know what is good to be done for a brother or a sister, do it. This would attract the blessings of God upon your life. Knowing what to do and not doing it is not pleasing to God.
“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you but to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?” (Micah 6:8). These are what God requires from every one of us. If we do this injunction, we will be living a consistent life. As Christians, our daily walk must be compatible with what we profess. No matter what we do, we must not forget who we are, whom we are serving and where we are going. This is what consistent living is about. May God teach us this lesson.
- Dear Father, please, grant me the grace to live for you consistently.
- Lord, please help me to know what to do, and give me the grace to do it till you’re pleased.
- Jesus, please, grant the entire body of Christ the grace to walk with you consistently.
