Gen 12:1, “The LORD had said to Abram, "Leave your country, your people and your father's household and go to the land I will show you.”

Dear Brothers and Sisters,


Loving greetings in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Today let us meditate about the call of God.  The Lord himself calls different people to follow Him in this world. Our lord Jesus Christ also called different types of people to follow him as His disciples when He was on this earth. That is why he told them as in John 6:70, “Then Jesus replied, "Have I not chosen you, the Twelve? Yet one of you is a devil!” Though we are living in this world the lord calls us out of this world to follow Him. That means though we are in this world we should not be of this world as in Rom 12:2 Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world. That is why some times the world may not agree with us and even hate us also as in John 15:19, “If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.”  We have to lose some thing in this world to gain some thing permanently from God.  Let us see what all the blessings God is giving to those who follow him in response to his divine call and follow him faithfully.

 

  1. Gen 12:2, “I will make you into a great nation – [they will ultimately increase immensely and become a great people group because of the blessings of God.]
  2. And I will bless you; - [God himself will bless them in this life.]
  3. I will make your name great, - [God will make them great irrespective of their abilities or talents.]
  4. And you will be a blessing. – [which ever community they may be living they will be considered as a blessing by every one.]
  5. Gen 12:3, “I will bless those who bless you, - [by blessing them people can be blessed.]
  6. And whoever curses you I will curse; - [by cursing them people can be cursed.]
  7. And all peoples on earth will be blessed through you." – [if any one has to be blessed by God they have to be blessed only through the children of God who have responded to the call of God.]

 

May the lord help us today to respond to the call of God immediately and get all these blessings of God.  Amen.
