Have you found your calling?

5. Matthew 6:33-34


But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

11. 2 Timothy 1:10


He has saved us and called us to a holy life — not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.

Robert Harper II touches on the message,

“For His Glory and My Good,” drawing inspiration from

2 Peter 1:5-10.


We gather this Sunday with hearts full of anticipation as we delve into a ​profound and transformative theme: "For His Glory and My Good." This title ​encapsulates the essence of our faith journey, aligning our lives with God's ​ultimate purpose and our personal fulfillment in His divine plan. Our guiding ​scripture for this sermon comes from 2 Peter 1:5-10, a passage rich with ​wisdom and a call to diligent spiritual growth.


In 2 Peter 1:5-10, the Apostle Peter lays out a roadmap for believers, urging us ​to add to our faith virtues that build a life pleasing to God. "For this very ​reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, ​knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; ​and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, mutual affection; and to ​mutual affection, love" (2 Peter 1:5-7, NIV). These verses are a clarion call to ​actively pursue a life of moral excellence, deep knowledge, and genuine love, ​reflecting God's glory in our daily walk.


As we unpack this scripture, we will explore how each of these virtues ​contributes to both God's glory and our good. Our faith is not a static belief ​but a dynamic journey requiring our constant effort and attention. Goodness ​shapes our character, knowledge deepens our understanding, self-control ​disciplines our impulses, perseverance strengthens our resolve, godliness ​aligns us with God's nature, mutual affection fosters community, and love ​binds everything together in perfect harmony.


The pursuit of these virtues is not merely for our benefit but for the glory of ​God. When we embody these qualities, we become living testimonies of God's ​transformative power. Our lives become beacons of His light, drawing others ​towards Him and fulfilling our ultimate purpose. Peter emphasizes that if we ​possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep us from being ​ineffective and unproductive in our knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ (2 ​Peter 1:8, NIV).


However, the absence of these virtues leads to spiritual blindness and ​shortsightedness, forgetting the cleansing from past sins (2 Peter 1:9, NIV). ​This stark warning reminds us that our spiritual growth is crucial for ​maintaining our connection with God and our effectiveness as His witnesses. ​By embracing the call to spiritual maturity, we honor God and experience the ​fullness of life He desires for us.


In conclusion, "For His Glory and My Good" is not just a sermon title but a ​lifestyle mandate. It is an invitation to reflect God's character in our lives and ​experience the profound joy and peace that comes from living according to ​His will. As we commit to growing in faith and virtue, let us be encouraged ​that our efforts glorify God and contribute to our ultimate good.


May we all be inspired and challenged by this message, striving to live lives ​that radiate His glory and bring us into the fullness of His goodness.
