1 Corinthians 2:14 (NKJV)
This is what was happening in me too. Before I was saved I used to read the Bible occasionally, but I never had the interest nor the zeal which I now find in me. But God’s plan never fails and whatever I did to resist Him, He faithfully kept calling me to experience Him. And I am ever so thankful that He did not give up on me. I am indeed blessed that I have been called and chosen.
Ephesians 1:4-6 (NKJV)
Not all who hear the good news will turn their hearts to Jesus. Only the chosen will receive Jesus. But we know that this is in line with God’s will. Still when we feel that little nudge from the Holy Spirit, we should share our faith with the nonbeliever. Who are we to presume that someone is lost and wont be saved? Though you may not know it you may be the only Christian he knows! So we have to be ready and willing to be used for God’s purposes.
Why were we called to Him? To praise His glory, yes that God is glorified, not me, not you, but God. We are not worthy but He is. We should always remember that we were created to praise and glorify Him and Him alone. That’s the purpose of our existence. We glorify Him when we do what Jesus emphasized the most – Love. Love God with al our heart and soul and love all of God’s children. For when we have love in our hearts no evil can exist there.
