His Grace is Sufficient

Updated: Dec 3, 2019

What does it mean to be called by grace? What is our calling?

To be called by grace simply put means that God has set us apart, predestined us to the body of Christ for a universal and unique calling which He has predetermined. Our calling is not based off of anything that we possess or have done but rather what Jesus did for us on the cross. We are all undeserving of our calling and yet, He wants to use us to do greater things.

John 14:12 NASB

“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the father.”

Universal Calling

We all have a universal calling which is what God has called us all to do as the body of Christ.

· Called to LIVE and WALK in the SPIRIT (Galatians 5:16-25)

· Called to PRAY without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17)

· Called to be HOLY (1 Peter 1:15)

· Called to be SANCTIFIED through the working of the Holy Spirit (1 Thessalonians 4:7)

· Called to EVANGELIZE (Mark 16:15)

· Called to LOVE one another and build each other up (1 Peter 4:8; Hebrews 10:24)

Unique Calling

God created diversity among the body of Christ to fulfill His work. Your unique calling is what God wants to do through you. If you don't already know what your calling is, seek it in prayer and ask the Lord to reveal it to you. The Holy Spirit will reveal your calling to you and will equip you for that calling. God created diversity within the body of Christ to accomplish His work (1 Corinthians 12). This work can only be done through the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:9)! Whether it is through our universal or unique calling, we are all participants in God's work and should do so for His glory and honor.
