Beloved you have settled into a way of life that was never meant for the long term. Just as Abram started on his journey with me, you have started out on your journey too. Just as I had much more for Abram, so I have much more for you. You have left the very comfortable lifestyle you had in order to answer my call on your life. It is like that of having left a warm cosy house and taken up a camping lifestyle, but now you have secured a Glamping lifestyle. You have started your journey, but you are now settled into another area of comfort.
I am calling you to embrace all that I have for you. This will require you to leave behind even more of those things that you are holding onto. Shed again the baggage of the past and take with you only the luggage that I will show you and you will experience life on the edge, that life that you were called for, that life of the pioneer pushing the boundaries of everyday living in me.
(NIV) Philippians 3:7-8
But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ. What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ,
(NIV) Mark 10:29-31
‘Truly I tell you,’ Jesus replied, ‘no one who has left home or brothers or sisters or mother or father or children or fields for me and the gospel will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age: homes, brothers, sisters, mothers, children and fields – along with persecutions – and in the age to come eternal life. But many who are first will be last, and the last first.’
(NIV) 2 Peter 1: 10-11
Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
