Walk worthy of your calling

Ephesians 4:1-2 I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love,

When you are one of God’s children, called to be part of His own family, you have a special opportunity. If you walk in a manner worthy of the calling you’re received, it can be a great testimony to others. This means living as someone who belongs to God’s family, as someone who is no longer bound by the Law, as someone who is free from condemnation.

It ought to be obvious when someone is a child of God. It should be reflected in the way you pray, the way you trust the Lord without worry, the way you treat others, the way you obey not as one who is trying to earn position but as one who already has it. A person who lives free from the bondage of the flesh is a unique thing indeed. It should be noticeable to people who still remain lost.

Jesus himself even said that the world would know His disciples by the love that we show one another (John 13:35). It’s important that we live with humility, gentleness, and patience as we continue in love with one another. To fulfill the two greatest commandments, loving God and loving people, is to walk in a manner worthy of your calling. So, can you do it? Can you walk that walk?
