Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things; I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your Lord.
He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful.
We know we're called. We believe we're chosen. Faithfulness is a lifelong commitment.
Dear God, if we've found favor in Your Sight, we ask Your guidance as we walk in faith.
Because faith is a process of asking, believing... and stepping out of the boat. It's moving forward in a sea of doubt. It's risk without observable reward. But a risk for God is a risk to take. Ironically, it's no risk at all.
While the outcome is unpredictable (and its timing lies beyond our control), God promises a glorious victory.
Here's the thing about faith in Jesus Christ: the ask is easy; the faith is harder, and stepping out is the proof He requires. Here's the hardest part; we can't stop stepping. Nor can we look back... or turn tail and run.
Let the realization of being in God's called, chosen and faithful begin now. Let us live it now. Jesus promised it wouldn't be easy, but He gave us a clear path to follow.
At its end? 'Enter into the joy of your Lord.' Hearing these Words is worth every effort.
## Called, Chosen & Faithful: The Win! (Part 3, Conclusion)
NOTE: This is a 2021 update of a 2011 Carey Lewis Devotion. You may see notes to 'Actors, Models & Talent for Christ.' If you think you're not in show business, think again. Shakespeare said, 'All the world's a stage and all its men and women merely players.' Mostly true. But you're not merely players. You are messengers and ambassadors for the King of kings.
