Brought Through The Fire!!

“Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”(Hebrews 12:11)

“Your calling,” said Meister Eckhart to the clergy of his day, “cannot make you holy; but you can make it holy.”No matter how humble that calling may be, a holy man can make it a holy calling. A call to the ministry is not a call to be holy, as if the fact of his being a minister would sanctify a man; rather, the ministry is a calling for a holy man who has been made holy some other way than by the work he does. The true order is: God makes a man holy by BLOOD, FIRE, & SHARP DISCIPLINE. Then he calls the man to some special work, and the man being holy makes that work holy in turn….

Every person should see to it that he is fully cleansed from all sin, entirely surrendered to the whole will of GOD and filled with the Holy Spirit. Then he will not be known as what he does, but as what he is. He will be a man of GOD first and anything else second.

“You’ve called me to be holy, LORD, not famous; to be holy, not successful. Keep me focused today on being the person You want me to be, no matter how significant or insignificant the work You ask me to do. Amen.”
