Romans 1:6 ” And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.”

You belong to Jesus.   “To those who have been called, who are loved by God the Father and kept by Jesus Christ.” (Jude 1)   “And you also are among those who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.” (Romans 1:6-7)  The Holy Spirit extends an invitation…a summons to salvation through the message of the Gospel.  We then have to make the decision to either accept or reject that invitation.  But if you do reject Jesus, that still doesn’t change His mind about you.  He will keep extending His hand of forgiven and love until you draw your last breath…for you belong to Him.

Isaiah 42:6 ” I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand.”

Elsewhere in Isaiah we find, “For I am the Lord, your God, who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, Do not fear; I will help you.” (Isaiah 41:13)  God will never call you without first making a way.  He will never choose you for a specific work without equipping you with everything you need prior.  Finally, God will always take into consideration and use your strengths…your gifts, talents, passions, and heart.   In other words, God uses the very best of who you are to further His Kingdom.  So never shy away from what God is calling you to do…for in His eyes, you are the very best person for the job!
