Because He Called...

John 10:29English Standard Version (ESV)
29 My Father, who has given them to me,[a] is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.

1 Peter 2:9English Standard Version (ESV)
9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Hebrews 12:28English Standard Version (ESV)
28 Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe,

Ephesians 2:8-9English Standard Version (ESV)
8 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, 9 not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Colossians 1:13-14English Standard Version (ESV)
13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

...I answered.  Tonight I am thankful that God called me to Himself.  If it had been up to me, it would never have happened.  I would be left trying desperately to find a savior among impotent, mortal men, seeking validation from vain things and forgiveness from the unforgiven.  Without Christ we would all be dead men walking; however with Christ we are resurrected men: living, breathing followers of our risen Lord.
