Today’s Bible Verse 19.09.2017
And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams. — 1 Samuel 15:22 (KJV)

The gift of His call

Going about their economic chores harnessing moulded skills and resources,

Immersed in rooted craving; fixated on outcomes beneficial and uncertain,

Wobbling, the boat rocked in tired motion as they scanned the riverbed for a haul.

 

His sonorous voice beckoned the fish huntsmen; the clarions call to newness, a glorious leap from a gory world,

“…Come after me and I will make you fishers of men.” Words that reverberated in the saddled hearts of the hearers’,

Time to rationalize forlorn and lost in the moment “and they straightaway left the nets and followed Him” – Matthew 4:19.

 

A zesty and spontaneous resolve ditched the past brazened out with nets and baits,

Disregardful of the terrain ahead, separated from careers and the mousetrap of windfalls,

Underwhelmed with self and gloated in chargeless service, they followed out faith and obedience.

 

Unyielding to the swing of iniquity and hurt; the infeasible became possible to a doubting world,

Not regressing they taught, persevered, lived and died on steely passion for the Word,

Stretching the message of the Master afar from curling waves and the tax booth of Matthew.

 

They shared, spread, and gave time, substance, unction, reprieve, healing, liberty, peace…,

And by no means obtained, wrenched, grabbed; exploiting the vulnerable like ravening wolves,

Never lionized themselves as “Christ did not glorify Himself to become high priest” – Hebrews 5:5

 

Exerted their gift with no holds barred; giving to others without pay for freely they received – Matthew 10:8,

With humility embraced the axiom: the power of God on flesh is not by skill, it is the gift of God” – Ephesians 2:8,

Indulging not in self-serving theatrics for for no man can serve two masters – God and mammon.

 

They centred on the Caller’s challenge saying seek first after God and all other needs shall be given as well,

The Master roundly propagated as the sole access to his Father with whom He is one; a unit that represent the whole for He is the way, the truth and the life – John 10:30, 14:6,

And people sanctified by the truth without muddling the process; kept it simple, gave them the Word, salvation, the essence, everything.

                                                                               In His grip, 

                                                                                Victor Sisan Awani
