Commit to His Calling
“… I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me — the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace” (Acts 20:24).
It isn’t too hard to run a short distance really fast; the true test comes when you need to run a whole marathon. It takes months of training and a whole lot of endurance.
In the same way, sticking to what the Lord has called you to do takes endurance.
That is why it’s so important to continue seeking the Lord throughout each season of your life, especially when you’re bringing the Gospel to others. If you will surrender your heart to Him, the world around you will never be the same!
So be encouraged: You are right where God wants you. He is pleased with you, and as you commit to His calling on your life, running your race well, you will experience all that He has for you!
