Using Ephesians 4.1 as his base text today, Ed M. focuses in his devotional on the holy life required by Christ’s call.

A Roman philosopher said, “It is useful for the public good when people believe themselves to be born of the gods.” Why? In so doing “they will pursue worthy enterprises more earnestly.” Should not such a perception draw the children of God away from what is base? Should it not inspire them toward noble thoughts and holy deeds?

Focus question: Where does the concept of calling appear in the NT? How should it shape our behavior?
