Have you ever received a robocall? The phone rings as usual but after you answer, just at the moment you would say hello, a message begins at the other end. Generally it’s a message from a telemarketer or a political party but here we get messages from the owners of our little community.
They warn of ice, or snow storms and sometimes even invite us to parties. An automated system like a robocall helps users get their message out all at once. Once in a while I missed the call. Happily, the thing calls repeatedly until you actually get the message.
Jesus will call you… and call you… and call you again… and your job is to answer.
Therefore, my brothers and sisters, make every effort to confirm your calling and election. For if you do these things, you will never stumble, and you will receive a rich welcome into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. (2 Peter 1:10-11, NIV)
Prayer – Lord, don’t give up on any of us please… open our ears that we might hear your call. Amen
