But thanks be to God! For in union with Christ we are always led by God as prisoners in Christ’s victory procession. God uses us to make the knowledge about Christ spread everywhere like a sweet fragrance. For we are like a sweet-smelling incense offered by Christ to God, which spreads among those who are being saved and those who are being lost. 2 Corinthians 2:14‭-‬15 GNT

God’s purpose for your election in Christ Jesus is to be His censer 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 places you, you are there to represent Him, beaming His light in the dark world. As light exposes darkness and drives it away, you have been chosen not to conform with the practices of the world but to denounce  all 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 and calling known in the midst of the corrupt and perverse society like ours and impact eternity. If you stand for God, it is certain God also will stand with you. I pray the Lord gives you the courage to make a full proof of your calling everywhere you go this day and beyond. Have a blessed day.

Your brother,
