Dear Readers in Christ, "Draw near to GOD, and He will draw near to you" (James 4:8).

“Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus”(Heb 3:1).

We have a heavenly calling, and need to live a holy life, we should consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, and not the oppositions from our family, the problems in our surroundings and other obstacles the devil brings up to destroy our heavenly calling. How many useful and blessed servants of God have been attacked by the enemy with doubts concerning their high calling!

The attack of the enemy against Samson was against his high calling. He knew very well that he was raised up by God to destroy the Philistines. However, despising his great high calling, he gave room to lust and loved a Philistine girl, and she, in turn, betrayed him. How sadly he lost his great high calling and died with the Philistines!

How sad that, many who are called to Zion and New Jerusalem are losing their vision and perishing miserably in this world! In times of trials, don’t forget your high calling. With St. Paul, let us also say, “None of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus” (Acts 20:24).

Child of God, never doubt the high calling of God on your life. “Give diligence to make your calling and election sure; for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall” (2 Pet 1:10).
