Whilst you still have breath in your body, know that you are alive! Have you ever had the feeling that you’re ‘marking time’, as if waiting for something else, something more to happen? Is it a ‘call’ that you are waiting on? If so, know that you are called today.
The call of the Lord is on your life – behold I call to you today, says the Lord. Even until your last breath I am calling you to my purposes, says the Lord of Creation. Even retirement is no hindrance to my work in, and through, you. Awaken your spirit, awaken your ears, listen to my Spirit, stir your spirit up within you. Let my Spirit rise up within you today, that you might hear my call to action this very day. Come! Let us work, says the Spirit of the Lord. No more ‘marking time’ – come on, it’s time for you to advance!
2 Corinthians 3:7-11
Now if the ministry that brought death, which was engraved in letters on stone, came with glory, so that the Israelites could not look steadily at the face of Moses because of its glory, transitory though it was, will not the ministry of the Spirit be even more glorious? If the ministry that brought condemnation was glorious, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness! For what was glorious has no glory now in comparison with the surpassing glory. And if what was transitory came with glory, how much greater is the glory of that which lasts!
