Many are talking about their “Calling” is going to be fulfilled in the New Year, but who will answer the call to be holy?
To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours:
1 Corinthians 1:2 (NIV)
Notice the verse say “those sanctified in Christ and called…”
Many will say I’m already holy because of Jesus on the cross, but here Paul is saying that sanctified is past tense, you are stilled called to be, being made Holy, by taking up your cross and the inward working of the Holy Spirit.
Many people want to find their life calling but fail to have a desire and understanding of a calling to be holy. The Idea of Holiness is to be set apart for a sacred use and no longer used as common everyday use. Just the Idea that God wants to use use is a starting point for us to be holy. God is calling us to be “holy” for His mission for our lives.
So to have a “calling” it must by definition start with holiness.
