I Thessalonians 2:12
...Ye would walk worthy of God, who hath called you unto His kingdom and glory.
If the question was raised, why must believers walk worthy of our calling? We walk worthy of our calling because God the Father chose us instead of believers choosing God to become members of His holy nation of people. Also, consider where man is in the order of creation compared to all of God's other creations, man is the one creation with God's Spirit dwells in us. He breathed the breath of life into man and he became a living soul. This was so that man could respond to God in love and in fellowship. God is love.
Consider the price that was paid in God's plan of redemption. He gave His best and our Redeemer gave His life; therefore, He is worthy of our honoring Him with our total being while presenting our bodies as instruments of righteousness. Being the elect and called of God means that God knew from the beginning of time who He would call as His elect; therefore, all believers were predestinate before time began.
We walk worthy of our calling because God the Father has given every believer a specific gift to be used in the furtherance of His kingdom. Each gift is important as it was given to edify the body of Christ-the church.
Believers, we are called for a purpose; therefore, walk worthy of your calling.
