{"So, dear brothers and sisters, work hard to prove that you really are among those God has called and chosen. Do these things, and you will never fall away. Then God will give you a grand entrance into the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." -2 Peter 1:10-11, NLT}

God made a way for you to enter in to His love. It's the way He has laid out before you; the path He has placed in front of your very feet. Follow this path. Even when you stray, seek the light of the Lord and allow Him to guide you back to where you belong. He's the only one that can do it. Don't rely on the world to show you where you belong and tell you who you're supposed to be. You belong to God. You are adopted, chosen, and redeemed in His sight and it is your job to color the colorless hearts of this world with beautiful hues of compassion, soft shades of gentleness, bright shades of joy, and deep, abundant red waves of love. You are called to bring God's name to this world, to expand the very Kingdom you're living in across the nations. 

1) Don't believe in the false claim that believing in God is simply enough. God wants to use us for His greater good in this world. He breathed life into your bones and gave you freedom with a desire for you to bear witness to the Good News. What an honor this is! 

2) Don't believe the lie that this "isn't your calling." Friends, this IS your calling. This is your identity and your job, and you are more than equipped. You are the tool in His kingdom and the pen in His hands, friends. The Lord YOUR God will work wonders through you as you let Him use the potential that He's placed inside of you! 

Believe in the transforming powers of His grace and the impact that His reflection has on the world as you allow Him to work in and through you. I can't say this enough. One of God's missional desires is to achieve His mission through you. YOU!  And with that in mind, we've got work to do. Whoever you are, wherever you are, know that you are a part of the Story in which God invites us to live in. So what are you waiting for? Accept His grand invitation if you haven't already, and make the Author of your story known.
