Worthy

You have a calling,

a purpose

 

And is the way you are living your life,

worthy of that calling?

 

The choices you make,

the way you spend your time

 

Is it worthy?

Or is it a waste?

 

What is your purpose?

What is your calling?

 

What has eternal value here,

and what does not?

 

Our lives should reflect the Gospel

 

The Gospel of life

and unity

and grace

and peace

and giving

 

If we spend our lives

serving the unworthy

while keeping our eyes on the only One

who is

 

There we will be living

a Gospel life

 

If we realize that we are not entitled,

but are unworthy

 

Then He can use us

to point people to Jesus,

to He who is worthy

 

– Susie Stewart

 

As a prisoner of the Lord, I urge you: Live a life that is worthy of the calling He has graciously extended to you.

– Ephesians 4:1 (VOICE)

 

You see, they go on and on telling us the story of how you welcomed us when we were introduced to you; how you turned toward God and realigned your life to serve the one true living God—leaving your idols to crumble in the dust—

– 1 Thessalonians 1:9 (VOICE)

 

Above all, you must live as citizens of heaven, conducting yourselves in a manner worthy of the Good News about Christ. Then, whether I come and see you again or only hear about you, I will know that you are standing together with one spirit and one purpose, fighting together for the faith, which is the Good News.

– Philippians 1:27 (NLT)

 

…and if you spend yourselves in behalf of the hungry
and satisfy the needs of the oppressed,
then your light will rise in the darkness,
and your night will become like the noonday.
The Lord will guide you always;
He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land
and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden,
like a spring whose waters never fail.

– Isaiah 58:10, 11 (NIV)

 

Then in my vision I heard the voices of many angels encircling the throne, the living creatures and the elders. There were myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands, crying in a great voice, “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain to receive power and riches and wisdom, and strength and honour and glory and blessing!”

– Revelation 5:11-13 (PHILLIPS)
