"So we keep on praying for you, asking our God to enable you to live a life worthy of his call. May he give you the power to accomplish all the good things your faith prompts you to do. Then the name of our Lord Jesus will be honoured because of the way you live, and you will be honoured along with him. This is all made possible because of the grace of our God and Lord, Jesus Christ." - 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12
These words from Paul to the church in Thessalonica are inspiring. He tells them that they will always be in his prayers and that he will pray for them to LIVE a LIFE worthy of the call. This prayer is for all believers, not just leaders of the church - we all have a call to respond to and when we live a life that is worthy of that call we honour God.
The other amazing thing is that God promises to give us the power and strength to accomplish all this things - we don't need to do it in our own strength.
A few questions to ponder:
1. What has God called you to do?
2. Are you fulfilling that calling?
3. And whose strength are you relying on?
