“I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” – John 10:10 NIV
Since the invention of caller ID we’ve become accustomed to knowing who is calling us, and we’ve made the habit of choosing which calls to accept and which ones to ignore. This is good. We do not need to accept every call or every opportunity that presents itself. Not every person deserves our attention, nor every task our dedication. But Jesus does. He’s proven Himself worthy. He died on the cross in our place that we might know God. So when He calls us who are we to leave Him waiting outside? Who are we to leave Him hanging? Who are we to ignore Him and act like we’re not home? So why is Jesus calling and knocking? What does He want? He tells us: “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10 NIV)
Jesus wants to give us something that no one else can. He wants us to realize He is the answer we never knew we needed. When we ignore God pulling on our hearts to answer the call He’s placed on our lives we ignore the full life He desires to grant us. I encourage you to trust in God’s faithfulness and answer His call today.
Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for desiring a relationship with me. I pray for faith and courage to answer your call so I my experience the full life only You promise. In Jesus Christ Name I pray. Amen.
How do you know when God is calling you to something?
