Answering the Call

“For we are the true circumcision, who worship God in SPIRIT, and glory in CHRIST JESUSone thing I do, forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward CALL of God in Christ Jesus.  Let those of us who are mature be thus minded; and if in anything you are otherwise minded, God will reveal that also to you. Only let us hold true to what we have ATTAINED” Philippians 3:2-16 RSV

“[We pray] that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give a SPIRIT of Wisdom and of REVELATION in the Knowledge of Him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, to KNOW what is the hope to which he has CALLED you, what are the riches of his glorious INHERITANCE in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of His Power in us who believe, according to the working of his great Might…accomplished IN CHRIST” Ephesians 1:17-19

“Hearts encouraged as they are knit together in love, to have ALL the riches of assured Understanding and the Knowledge of God’s mystery, of Christ, in whom are hid ALL the treasures of Wisdom and Knowledge. I say this in order that no one may delude you with beguiling speech…As therefore you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so live IN HIM, rooted and built up IN HIMSee to it that no one makes a prey of you by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the universe, and not according to Christ. For IN HIM the whole fulness of deity dwells bodily, and you have come to fulness of life IN HIM, who is the HEAD of ALL rule and authority. IN HIM also you were circumcised with a circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of flesh in the circumcision of Christ; and you were buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead. And you, who were dead in trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made alive together WITH HIM, having forgiven us ALL our trespasses, having canceled the bond which stood against us with its legal demands; this he set aside, nailing it to the cross.  He disarmed the principalities and powers and made a public example of them, triumphing over them IN CHRIST…holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God…If with Christ you died to the elemental spirits of the universe, why do you live as if you still belonged to the world? Why do you submit to regulations…If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are ABOVE, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are ABOVE, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hid WITH Christ IN God” Colossians 2:2-3:3

These are of one mind and give over their power and authority to the beast; they will make war on the Lamb, and the Lamb will conquer them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those WITH HIM are called and chosen and faithful” Revelation 17:13-14
