Christ's calling

“May the Lord direct your hearts to the love of God and to the steadfastness of Christ.”
2 Thessalonians 3:5

2 - Reflect
Jesus Christ is sovereign in heaven and earth, and ignoring His call expresses our vanity and pride. To ignore Christ's requests will only produce indifference and sadness. It will send us more and more towards dark and confusing paths, in which we will not find consolation or mercy. To instead follow our passions will taint our conscience and make us walk in darkness. Everything we try to hide from Him, He will know it somehow, and every call that we have refused to fulfill He will also know. These acts of rebellion, do nothing but show that our faith is faltering, that we must strengthen our belief and our devotion in the Lord.

We must allow Him to conform us to His image and likeness, imitating His life and His actions. Following His example will fill us with clarity and peace, it is useless to learn some verses of the Bible by heart if we do not live in His grace. Those who respond to the request of the Lord are not know-it-all people but rather they learn to walk the path that their Father offers them. Those who respond with a "no" each time will become more reticent and less accepting of the divine teaching.
