Biblical Commentary

This commentary focus is “From Darkness to Light.”  It provides the cause and effective of the work of Christ. The final discussion is pertaining to God’s call. The God’s Call serves as the cause, with the effect being the presence of His salvation. The lessons are letting us know that His Call is inclusive, not exclusive.

Nelson’s Bible dictionary defines the calling as God’s call of individuals to salvation, made possible by the sacrificial death of Jesus Christ. His calling involves believers in the high calling of living their lives in service to others. The misconception of many is that we should be served, rather than serving.

First, we are shown the resume of the Called (1 Cor. 1:18-254). “ For ye see your calling, brethren, how that not many wise, men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble are called: but God has chosen the foolish things to confound the wise; and the weak things to confound the mighty. Next, Paul reminds us of the calling (2 Tim. 1:3-14), of Timothy, because of the faith that is in him from his mother and his grandmother! He tells Timothy to, “Holdfast the form of sound words, which thou hast heard of me, in faith and love, which is in Christ Jesus. Then, James instructs us on the responsibility of those called, (James 2:1-12). “If you fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself, ye do well. Do not esteem the wealthy and despise the poor. Apostle Peter comforts us with the results of the Call, 1 Peter 2:1-25.  We are to lay aside all malice, guile and envies and all evil speaking. Why? Because, “Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. Let your light shine among men.
