My Calling My Duty
Jesus Christ has called many to follow Him but very few have answered to that call. Jesus Christ called the apostle Paul on the Damascus road. Those who were with him did not hear the voice but Paul heard His voice and he answered to the call.
Jesus Christ called me also. One night I woke up and I heard this voice. I heard it but nobody else heard it. This voice said to me:"Go to whomever I send you and take their hand and put their hand in My hand and I will guide them." That was Jesus Christ who called me. I answered to the call and I do go where He sends me to take whomever He sends me to, to put their hand in His hand so that they can follow Him.
Jesus Christ has called many but few were willing to answer to that call. We read in Matthew 22:!
"Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying, 2“The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who gave a wedding feast for his son. 3“And he sent out his slaves to call those who had been invited to the wedding feast, and they were unwilling to come. 4“Again he sent out other slaves saying, ‘Tell those who have been invited, “Behold, I have prepared my dinner; my oxen and my fattened livestock are all butchered and everything is ready; come to the wedding feast.”’ 5“But they paid no attention and went their way, one to his own farm, another to his business, 6and the rest seized his slaves and mistreated them and killed them. 7“But the king was enraged, and he sent his armies and destroyed those murderers and set their city on fire. 8“Then he said to his slaves, ‘The wedding is ready, but those who were invited were not worthy. 9‘Go therefore to the main highways, and as many as you find there, invite to the wedding feast.’ 10“Those slaves went out into the streets and gathered together all they found, both evil and good; and the wedding hall was filled with dinner guests.
11“But when the king came in to look over the dinner guests, he saw a man there who was not dressed in wedding clothes, 12and he said to him, ‘Friend, how did you come in here without wedding clothes?’ And the man was speechless. 13“Then the king said to the servants, ‘Bind him hand and foot, and throw him into the outer darkness; in that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ 14“For many are called, but few are chosen.”
Jesus has called many but those who were called were not worthy of Him. They were not interested and He has been sending His servants out to call anybody to come to that feast. Many of those are the believers of today. They believe they are saved but they do not have wedding clothes on. They are not pure and holy . They have not been sanctified. They are not worthy of Jesus Christ. They will be cast out in utter darkness. Many have received the message. Many have been warned to prepare themselves, to be pure and holy but very few answered to that call. Very few have wedding clothes on. Very few have repented of their wicked ways. Very few are clothed in holiness and righteousness and obedience to Jesus Christ.
Jesus has called many. He has called you also dear friend. Do you have wedding clothes on? Did you answer to the call and are you doing the task for which He called you? Are you serving the Master? Have you become a servant of the kingdom of God and are you worthy to sit at the feast meal of the Master?
May Jesus bless you.
