Jesus Calling

Re: Verse reading–Ephesians 4:1-16 (day one)
It is a popular devotional book.  Jesus Calling, by Sarah Young, is a collection of 1st person words from Christ to the believer. (At least the author’s idea.)  It rests on a clear biblical conviction that the Lord calls/commands us and that hearing and obeying His voice is the key to life! “Today, if you hear my voice, do not harden your hearts”–Hebrews 4:7.  “Now faith comes through hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ”–Romans 10:17.  After 3 chapters of intense and glorious doctrinal instruction,  Paul turns to application.  “What must I DO, Lord?” he urges us to ask, and his first application focus is for us to recognize the voice of Christ and respond to it with obedient faith.  Verse 1 reads (literally),  “I CALL you to walk in a manner worthy of the CALLING with which you have been CALLED.”  Christian friend, do you hear His voice?  His direction? As you do, will you obey?
