Make Due Use of Opportunities: WALK

By Jay Pearson


We are called by name to walk worthy of our vocation in the Lord. When we keep our purpose and God’s eternal promises in the forefront of our hearts, we will endure and complete our calling. For out of our heart are the issues of life. Here is an example of that walk to glory.

Hebrews 12:2:
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Romans 2:7:
To them who by patient continuance in well doing seek for glory and honour and immortality, eternal life:

We are encouraged and exhorted to walk worthy of our calling and vocation. Let us read and dwell on a few of these scriptures. How we can live these scriptures in our everyday living.

Ephesians 4:1:
I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,

Let’s look closely at the verse and the words within.

The prisoner of the Lord
Paul’s reference to being the prisoner of the Lord in Ephesians 4:1 is explained in detail in chapter 3 of Ephesians.

To make ones way, progress, to make due use of the opportunities availed to you.

Suitably, in manner of worthy of (to be suited with Christ as your garment)

The vocation
A call to divine invitation to embrace the salvation of God

Ye are called
Called out loud by name

You can see how important and significant this exhortation, loving employment, and commandment is. Amen.

Colossians 1:10:
That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;

1 Thessalonians 2:12:
That ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto his kingdom and glory.

Is it possible to live this type of a life style in today’s world? Is it possible to keep and express or godliness in our work place, around our unbelieving neighbors, within our families and social surroundings today? Yes and with surety.

Philippians 2:13:
For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.

Let’s start right here in our little gathering, loving one another as Christ love us and gave himself for us and let’s continue outside these doors and our comfort zones.

Ephesians 5:1-2:
1 Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children;
2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweetsmelling savour.
