I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation with which you are called,…
I. THE BEHAVIOUR OF CHRISTIANS SHOULD CORRESPOND WITH THEIR VOCATION.
1. From a sense of gratitude.
2. The Divine sentiment from which the vocation sprang should possess them.
II. CERTAIN VIRTUES SPECIALLY BECOME THE CHRISTIAN VOCATION.
1. Because of what they are in themselves.
2. Because of the great end they promote — "the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." This reveals the real grandeur of these virtues.
(A. F. Muir, M. A.)
