Scripture: Ephesians 4:1-3
Ephesians 4:1-3 says, “I, therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” To have a walk worthy of the calling with which we are called invites us to look at God’s Word axios, which is translated ‘Worthy.’ Axios is a commercial, financial term used for paying the worth or price for an item that is being purchased. But it is also used in a spiritual sense where we walk in such a way that we can represent God according to the need of the generation we are ministering to. Walking worthy of the calling means we are willing to pay the price to walk in righteousness and obedience so that we can do what the Lord calls us to do. Are we really willing to pay the price for the magnitude of the anointing that we need to survive in the last days? That is the issue of the Ephesians 4 exhortation to walk worthy of the call. Attitude is very important in qualifying for the fullness of our gifting and calling. We have to be gentle, we have to have patience, we have to bear with people in love and we have to work at keeping the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Qualifying for all that God has is a serious issue in the last days. It is a matter of integrity, obedience and sacrifice. The question is, are we willing to really walk it out. The harvest is waiting on us!
