Scripture: Ephesians 4:4-8
Ephesians 4:4-8 says, “There is one body and one Spirit, just as you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism; one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. But to each one of us grace was given according to the measure of Christ’s gift. Therefore He says: ‘When He ascended on high, He led captivity captive, And gave gifts to men’” It is obvious, in this passage that each of us are not only called, but we are given the grace necessary to match the gifting that God has given us. This means that our destiny is locked up in our authority to choose to walk out our gifting and call in whatever circumstances we find ourselves in. God has given us the grace to overcome all the adversity that arises against our gifting and calling and it comes by His grace. Grace is the ability of God, through supernatural anointing and strength, to get up and walk out our gifting and call based on the magnitude of the gift that God has given us. On Judgment Day, there will be no excuse for not doing what God called us to do because His grace is given in proportion to the call. We need to hear, we need to obey and we need to walk it out. God has done His part. The question is, are we willing to do ours? And that is why we see the declaration, “Walk worthy of the call.” Walk worthy is a mouthful and it puts a real demand on us to pay the price to qualify for all that God has within our gifting and calling. His grace is here. Whether or not we access it, depends on how we walk. It is available if we choose to go after it. Grace and mercy when rejected turns to judgment!
