For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance. – Romans 11:29
There are tangible gifts that God gives us for a season – gifts that are not eternal, but temporary – we don’t understand why we have to lose these gifts / blessings, but we have to accept God’s plan and know that He will sustain us no matter what.
Paul has looked through a telescope to get a glimpse of just how big God is, and he invites us to take a look for ourselves. The gifts in this verse are not tangible, they are special and spiritual gifts from God – His free grace, having to do with the spiritual and eternal welfare of the souls of men. Once we accept Christ into our hearts and lives, these things are ours for eternity and will never be taken from us – they are without repentance – immutable and unalterable. God will never revoke them or take them away from us once we’ve accepted them. Why? Because God never changes and He is faithful to love and care for His own at all times. There are no degrees or shadow of distinction. His grace stands immovable and reliable.
Because God’s will is sovereign and He never changes – we can rest in and rely on His promises.
How many things are reliable in this world? Not many… in this life people make promises and often don’t keep them.
God’s call on your life is forever – He will never take it back. The gifts and abilities that God gave you are yours to use for Him.
Once you walk through the door of Salvation, you belong to God for eternity. He will never sever that relationship with you.
Walk through the door, shutting the door behind you. Use your God-given talents and abilities to glorify your heavenly Father. He will help you find a ministry if you ask Him. 🙂
