Bible Verse of the Week: Romans 8:30b

"Those He predestined, He also called." Romans 8:30b
How could anyone lean on his own understanding after Christ is the One Who granted us salvation? First of all, we are called to Holy life. Jesus said that we must be perfect as our Heavenly Father is perfect. If we are indeed called and live in sin, we can fully rely on God to help rid us of the sin. We need to strive for the prize for which God has called us heavenward through Christ Jesus. Is this truly the ultimate prize that one would want to win above all else? Only God can give the wonderful Heavenly calling. We, as Christians, have received that calling as all of His people have received it. I would not trade that calling for anything, and I pray that no Christian would. So let us remember that calling; and let us also live like we have it, for we do. ~Jesselyn
