We were in a new city, new congregation and new crowd. It was an amazing transition of never-befores. The game changer that allowed me to be comfortable in the unfamiliar was when I found Ephesians 4:1. Walk worthy of the vocation wherewith you have been called… “Called” is literally the word “invited”, so that scripture is saying “walk worthy wherewith you have been invited by God to serve.” There is no competition when you know you have been called. There is no comparison-it is when you know you have been called. There is no campaigning when you know you have been called. I am invited here by God. No one can unseat me from where God has placed me. There’s not need to compete because it is a role God has already given me. I’m individually gifted for this particular role where God has sent me to. I don’t have to convince anyone that I belong where God has placed me. Eph 4:1 Walk worthy
1. How does competition, comparison, and campaigning grow out of our own insecurities about God’s invitation?
2. How’s your walk today?
