Those of No Account

Nothing in this whole universe can step between us and our ultimate glorification, not even our own stupidity. For there are saints who say really stupid things like, “I really don’t see what use I can be to God,” or, “I am too ignorant, or too unworthy, or too fond of other things, to be one of His chosen ones.” The answer to such doubts lies in the fact that it is chiefly those of no account (humanly speaking) who are the very ones whom God has chosen for His ecclesia, so that glory may be His (I Corinthians 1:26-31).

Instruments of Up-Building

February 15, 2015

Follow after the things which make for peace, and things wherewith one may edify another (Romans 14:19).

Did you know that God has called us to a life of up-building; that we are His chosen vessels to such a grand purpose?

In the divinely established principle of contrasts – where all about us is constant conflict, division, strife, contention, hatred, judgment, rejection and tearing down – we are His contrasting instruments of reconciliation, peace, love, grace, acceptance and building up.

Paul lays out our divine course: following peace and edifying each other. Obviously we are not to do so to the detriment of truth – for there can be no true peace or building apart from the truth – but we are to be in constant pursuit of peace and edification; they are to be our lofty aim. Opposition to the truth is divisive enough on its own; so, Paul pleads that we must actively seek out the divine path of peace and building up.
