“It was for this He called you through our gospel, that you may gain the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ” (2 Thessalonians 2:14).
It is said many places in Scripture and here it is said once again: what is the purpose of our salvation? To become like Christ. To gain the glory of Christ is to gain adoption as a child of the Heavenly Father. It is not something you earn, nor deserve, but it is something you gain walking with the Savior who leads you in the way of becoming like Him. It was for this that He called you.
Lord, You have called me to walk with You. Guide me now and always so that I would humbly come with You to be where You are. You know the obstacles that lie before me. You know where I falter. Guide me, O Lord, through these things so that the true Gospel would take hold and I would take on the glory You prepared before the foundation of the world.
Lord Jesus, You have called me to walk with You abiding in me and me in You. You say this over and over again and yet I go off in other directions and do not do what You would have me do. Strengthen me that I would now and always hold fast to the goodness of the Gospel I have already received and keep the faith You have given me. Amen.
