Walk Worthy of The Calling.

Welcome to this blog page today and thanks for being one of our numerous readers. We shall start by reading the scripture in the book of Ephesians 4:1-6:

1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, 2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; 3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. 4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Ephesians. 4:1-6

Whenever someone becomes a Christian by repenting from his/her sins, and accepting Jesus Christ as personal Lord and Saviour, he/she begins a new life (2 Corinthians 5:17). This new life signifies the beginning of a journey to Heaven and is described as a call. It is only those who have pleased God, walked worthy of their calling as Christians that will reign with Christ in Heaven.
