2 Peter 1:10-11 -Callings and Elections

2 Peter 1:10-11
10
Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:
11 For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

-God has two main goals for our lives on Earth; to rescue us from Hell and put us to good use.  Just as God Himself is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34), so too are these goals open to everyone regardless of race, gender, color, etc.  Everyone can get in and everyone can do something.  If you can’t preach, you can teach, if you can’t teach, you can sing, if you can’t sing you can witness, if you can’t witness you can pray.  Just as Peter was moved by the Holy Ghost to warn those who would listen in his day, we should heed his warning now.  Make your election sure and your calling sure.  Make certain that you are redeemed and secured by the Blood of Christ and then find out where God wants to use you to accomplish His will.
