Our High And Holy Calling 

With humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, honor and life. 

What is humility? To not think of ourselves more highly than we should – to think of ourselves with sober judgement according to the measure of faith that he has given us, to consider others better than ourselves, and to cast all of our cares on the Lord. 

What is the fear of the Lord? To worship and reverence the Lord, to delight ourselves in him, to seek to please him, to be like him, to be with him, and to depart from evil.

Each of us has been given a measure of faith; we are not super men, invulnerable and flawless. We live by the mercy and grace generously provided by Our Lord. Every grace we possess has been granted to us as a gift, to the glory and praise of the Great I Am.  

There is no call to compare ourselves with one another or to think that we are better or worse than others. In Christ, we are all on the same journey of refinement by his glory and grace. We are all destined for the same glorious destination.

We are not designed to carry the weight of worry; as obedient children, we entrust all of our cares to Our Heavenly Father, trusting that he will take care of all of our needs. Also, we yield all of our ambitions and plans to his grand design for our life. We wait for his will to unfold each and every day. We find our fulfillment in walking out our daily assignments.

We delight ourselves in the fear of the Lord; we are glad and rejoice when he is lifted up and glorified. We know that he is in the process of glorifying us and conforming us to his image. 
  Worshipping the Lord is our high and holy calling; we stand taller when we are on our knees; we truly live when he is our life.
