What is a worthy life?

The Bible tells us we should live a life worthy of our calling, but what does that mean? Is it following a bunch of rules?  Is it achieving something great in the eyes of others? What is a life worthy of a Christian?

I think the problem some have with this topic is they want a yes-or-no answer; that is, they want to be told do this and you got it right, or do that and you messed up.  But does God want us to follow a list of rules, regulations and specifically laid-out plans outlining every aspect of our life, or does He have something more substantive in mind for us?

Ephesians says we should be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. It says we should make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.  1 Samuel tells us People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart. The books of the Bible are full of scriptures imploring us to seek God with all our heart; not just to mean well, but to truly seek His will for our lives. In short, a relationship with God.

So, what is a life worthy of our calling? I believe the answer is simple.  It’s a life of devotion to God, and of seeking His will for our lives.
