All that have made the choice to follow Jesus follow according to His purpose. None of us sitting here today were saved without having a purpose. All of us have been given the opportunity to make our call and election sure. It all started with a call, Jesus has appointed each of us a certain time that we were going to make the most important decision we will ever make, Follow Jesus or not. While it is true that if any man be in Christ he is a new creation it doesn’t necessarily mean that my outward man changes but my inner man certainly does. The scriptures say that “God demonstrated His own love toward us, in that we were still sinners Christ died for us”, Romans 5:8. The question still remains what were you called to be?
Today we will be in Ephesians 1 and contemplating all that He has done for us in the calling of us to Himself. The benefits are endless.
