Remain in the calling – அழைப்பில் நிலைத்திருத்தல்

Let each one remain in the same calling in which he was called-1 Corinthians 7:20

அவனவன் தான் அழைக்கப்பட்ட நிலைமையிலே நிலைத்திருக்கக்கடவன்-1 கொரிந்தியர் 7:20

ప్రతివాడు ఏ స్థితిలో పిలువబడెనో ఆ స్థితిలోనే యుండవలెను-1 కొరింథీయులకు 7:20

ದೇವರು ಕರೆದಾಗ ಪ್ರತಿಯೊಬ್ಬನು ಯಾವ ಸ್ಥಿತಿಯಲ್ಲಿದ್ದನೋ ಆ ಸ್ಥಿತಿಯಲ್ಲಿಯೇ ಇರಬೇಕು-1 ಕೊರಿಂಥದವರಿಗೆ 7:20

ഓരോരുത്തൻ വിളിക്കപ്പെട്ട സ്ഥിതിയിൽ തന്നേ വസിച്ചുകൊള്ളട്ടെ-1 കൊരിന്ത്യർ 7:20

Prayer – ஜெபம்

Father God, give me the strength to remain in the same calling for which You called. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.

தகப்பனே, நீர் அழைத்த அழைப்பில் நிலைத்திருக்க எனக்கு பெலம் தாரும் தேவா. இயேசுவின் மூலம் ஜெபிக்கிறோம் பிதாவே. ஆமென்.

1 Corinthians 7:20 – Meaning / Commentary

Paul restates what he wrote in verse 17: “Let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him.” As the following verse shows, this does not mean Christians should refuse to allow any changes to their life or circumstances. Instead, he is warning them not to worry about changing their status, or to change it for the wrong reasons.

One wrongheaded reason might be an attempt to make oneself more acceptable to the Lord. As Paul wrote in the first chapter, many who came to Christ in Corinth were not considered respectable by the world. Few were conventionally wise or wealthy or of noble birth (1 Corinthians 1:26–27). Perhaps, once saved, they felt the need to become respectable by some measurable standard in order to be more acceptable to Christ.

Another reason for wanting to change circumstances after coming to faith in Christ may have been the desire to be considered more spiritual or worthy by other Christians. Paul has already addressed the proud and judgmental attitudes of the Corinthians. Perhaps they were competing to look more spiritual or worthy to each other. Again, Paul makes clear this is a worthless goal.
