THE man who is called of God is bound for heaven, and has not given over his life to the empty pleasures of this world. All men have their pleasures by which their souls are lifted up; the worldly lifts up his soul in carnal delights, which are mere empty pleasures; but the Christian loves eternal pleasures, and like the Apostle Paul, the Christian is lifted up in the ways of the Lord (Acts 15). “But he who is content with slop, will be found with the swine. Does the world satisfy you? Then you have your reward and portion in this life; enjoy it, for you shall know no other”. (Spurgeon)
The person who is called of God is a humble person of honor. The Christian’s word is his only oath; but that is as good as twenty oaths of the unsaved. Lying will shut anyone out of heaven, for a liar shall not heed God’s call to enter into God’s house, whatever their actions or professions.
Will you heed the Call of God and ascend up to the holy hill and to God’s house?
