How do I confirm my calling and election?


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
            God wanted you to become a Christian, a member of his family.  He called you through the Holy Spirit, using people and circumstances to impress his love for you on your heart.  You responded, electing to surrender yourself to his service.
            God opens the door for everyone to join the Christian faith, however, only a few will respond.  And while he calls everyone, he knows exactly who will respond and when.  The invitation is general and personal.
            As for you, God has a specific calling and specific purpose for your life.  He has elected you to serve him at church, on missions, or at your work or school.  Respond and confirm that calling by saying “yes,” for you will receive a rich and glorious welcome to heaven because you followed his design.
