The Eye of the Storm

“One Year Bible” New Testament Passage John 18:25-19:22 Pilate therefore said to Him, “Are You a king then?” Jesus answered, “You say rightly that I am a king. For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.” John 18:37 (NKJV) We read today about Jesus ON TRIAL. He was brought before those who hated Him, disbelieved Him, and sought to tear Him down. Under examination He was challenged concerning His identity and His calling. By no means does our experience measure up in intensity to that which Jesus faced, but we do however face the same challenges – the same destructive attack. We too are challenged concerning our true identity and our original, foundational calling. They asked Jesus WHO HE WAS. They asked Him what He was CALLED TO DO. His answer was crystal clear. Jesus KNEW what the Father had sent Him to do. His answer said in essence, “This is what I was born to do.” So, let me ask you. Have you found your divine purpose? Have you discovered the very idea God had in mind when He created you? Can you say it clearly? Your identity and your calling are the most sacred part of you. It is a divine trust. It will be attacked. Satan will seek to deface it. It is the eye of the storm. It will always be the center of spiritual warfare over your life. It is the object of Christ’s restoring work in you. So, ask God today to renew a deep awareness in you of that unique calling He has placed on your life.
