He has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace, which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began. This has now been made evident through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who has abolished death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
– 2 Timothy 1:9, 10
Jesus saved me and called me with a holy calling. His call is not based on what I can do. It is given to me because of God’s grace – because He wanted to. God had a purpose for me before He ever spoke “Let there be light.” And if by that command there was light, so also will His purpose and calling be accomplished in my life. I know this is true, because Jesus conquered everything that seeks to hinder and tear me down: sin and death. The Gospel brings life and light that cannot be extinguished.
