I READ: 2 Peter 1: 1 – 15
The coming of the Lord Jesus is very short. Because of this, now is the time for God’s Church in these last days to rise up and begin to win souls. As children of the Lord who respond to this calling, we will join hand-in-hand with one another in responding to the Great Commission to reach out to the nations for Him. The Apostle Peter reminds us to be diligent in making God’s calling and election in our lives sure – that is, to be partners with God in sharing the Gospel across the face of the earth. The Apostle Paul says in verse 3 that if we live in the call and election of the Lord, then the Lord’s glorious and awesome power will be with us. He continues in verse 4 by saying that if we live under the call and election of the Lord, we will also escape the lust of the world which brings destruction. If our hearts are on fire and are excited to carry out our call and election, then by itself, we will not have the desire for the lusts of this world anymore. Our lives will become full of passion as we come to know the purpose of our lives. Our lives will no longer go on, day by day, if we have one glorious purpose in life – that is, to glorify the Lord and to win souls for Him.
I DECLARE: Philippians 3: 14: I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.
I DO: Today I will pray and ask the Holy Spirit to pour out His power so that I can begin to respond to the call and election of the Lord in my life
I PRAY: I will pray for my VIP List (my list of people who do not know the Lord yet) diligently until their lives are touched by the Lord and until they receive salvation
