In the Messiah, in Christ, God leads us from place to place in one perpetual victory parade. Through us, he brings knowledge of Christ. Everywhere we go, people breathe in the exquisite fragrance. Because of Christ, we give off a sweet scent rising to God, which is recognized by those on the way of salvation—an aroma redolent with life. But those on the way to destruction treat us more like the stench from a rotting corpse. This is a terrific responsibility. Is anyone competent to take it on? 2 Corinthians 2:14‭-‬16‭

God’s purpose for calling you to follow Jesus is to make you to be His censer which He uses to diffuse the fragrance of His knowledge everywhere in every place. This your divine purpose supersede your vocation in life.

Your chosen career no matter what is it, is the platform to fulfil your calling as a child of God. Wherever God you go and in whatever position you occupy, you are there as Christ ambassador; to represent Him, beaming His light in the dark world. As light exposes darkness and drives if away, you have been chosen not to conform with the practices of the world but to denounce all the sinful practices where you are.

Therefore, be free from self-centered preoccupations of life. Shine as light, stand for  righteousness, dare to make your calling and election known in the midst of corrupt society like ours and impact eternity.

If you stand for God, it is certain God also will stand with you. He will show you mercy, cause you to be viewed with favour and He will make you prosper in whatever you do. I pray the Lord give you the courage to make a full proof of your calling everywhere you go from this day forward. Have a glorious day.

Your brother,
