“Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election” ( 2 Peter 1:10a).

Everyone has a call.  The Latin word vocatio is the word from which we get vocation.  Even the one retired who plays golf has that as their avocation.  Is your true call the one from Jesus?  Live in the call He has given you and confirm that you are called by living out that call in Him.  It is simply living the truth in your life.  It is affirming that you are becoming like Christ as He conforms you to His image.

Lord, why do I make the faith so much more difficult than it needs to be?  You called me in my baptism and gave me the power to become a child of the Heavenly Father.  Lead me in the way of everlasting life so that I may live the truth that You elected me to become Your child.   I did nothing to deserve it, it was a free gift You gave through faith and that is Your grace to enable me to become what You will make of me.

Lord Jesus, we have all been born to live in such a time as we find ourselves.  In You alone is hope and promise.  Guide me, dear Lord, to see that in the hope You give I will find all it takes to make me complete.  Lead me and help me to always follow You.  Speak to me, Lord, and help me to hear when You speak.  Guide me, Lord, and help me to follow You wherever You lead.  Amen.
