Galatians 1:15 (Passion Translation)
But then God called me by his grace; and in love, he chose me from my birth to be his.
Paul, the writer of 2/3 of the New Testament, once persecuted the Church with great passion and zeal. In spite of all he had done to destroy what God was doing, God never removed the call that He had put on Paul’s life. None of the floggings, stonings, or arrests that he had inflicted upon the believers of that day disqualified him in God’s eyes. That same grace is upon your life today. The very thing that the Lord has called you to from the beginning of creation is still in effect over your life, no matter what your past mistakes may try to tell you. What happened in the past holds no bearing on your future other than what you allow it to. The longer you allow it to stay buried in the the graveyard of your failures the less likely you’ll be to let God resurrect it. The very grace that brought Jesus back from the grave, is the same grace that will enable you step into and walk out the calling that He has placed on your life. There is a call of God upon your life that someone else’s life is depending upon. The time for guilt and excuses is over. God see past your failures, to your potential and it’s time you allowed Him to show you what He sees. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff.
