“As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received.”
Paul, imprisoned for spreading the word about Jesus? Now he wants others to follow his example, even if they end up in prison like him?
Did Paul’s incarceration stop the Christians he was writing to from spreading the word? More, did Jesus’ crucifixion stop them for fear they would be crucified too? Did early Christians decide it was too dangerous to tell people the way to escape hell and go to heaven? Never.
They loved people’s souls so much, they were willing to take insults, persecution, imprisonment and even death in the hopes their persistent love would Eventually, lead to people becoming Christians and being saved from eternal hell. They knew their “calling” as Christians.
How about today? Do you live a life worthy of your calling as a Christian? Do you stand up for Jesus and reach out to the lost, regardless of how they treat you? Or do you cower and use the excuse, “Once people see my godly life, they will ask me how to be saved”? How many times do the lost really do that?
Rise up! Stand tall as a brave soldier of the Lord. Dare to march into enemy territory and do everything you can to snatch the lost out of the claws of Satan.
No matter what they do to you.
