THE UPWARD CALL OF GOD

OBSERVATION: A BELIEVERS’ CALL IS UPWARD.

INTERPRETATION: PHILIPPIANS 3:14 (NKJV) I PRESS TOWARD THE GOAL FOR THE PRIZE OF THE UPWARD CALL OF GOD IN CHRIST JESUS.

POINTS TO PONDER:

PAUL UNDERSTOOD HE WOULD NOT ATTAIN PERFECTION IN THIS LIFE. PAUL STATED HE DIED DAILY TO HIS SELF-LIFE. 1 CORINTHIANS 15:31 (NASV) I AFFIRM, BRETHREN, BY THE BOASTING IN YOU WHICH I HAVE IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD, I DIE DAILY.

YOUR UPWARD CALL MEANS DEATH TO YOUR SELF-LIFE. THIS MEANS YOU WALK VIGILANTLY IN CHRISTIAN CHARACTER.

YOU MUST WALK CIRCUMSPECT (CAUTION), FULLY, LIVING CAREFULLY EACH DAY. YOU PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR CONDUCT WHETHER IN SPEECH OR ACTION. LIGHT AND LIFE IN CHRIST MUST BE APPARENT.

VIGILANCE (ALERTNESS, KEENLY AWARE) IS REQUIRED OF YOU. IT IS A MIND AND HEART MINDSET. (PROVERBS 23:7) FOR AS HE THINKS IN HIS HEART, SO IS HE. EAT AND DRINK HE SAYS TO YOU, BUT HIS HEART IS NOT WITH YOU.

APPLICATION: YOU SHOULD BE THE ENTIRE PERSON YOU OUGHT TO BE IN CHRIST. CHRISTIAN CHARACTER HAS ETERNAL MERIT: IT IS YOUR UPWARD CALL!
