For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable. Romans 11:29
“Irrevocable” basically means irreversible.
Products come in reversible form- clothing, rugs, comforters for beds, and placemats just to name a few. Reversible products give us a consumer feeling of getting a great deal. Two options for the price of one. We like reversible things.
Irreversible is more troubling. Breaking the law is not able to be reversed. A failing final grade cannot be undone. The death of a loved one or family pet—irreversible.
As followers of Chist, God’s calling on our lives and the gifts he places within us are irreversible. We cannot undo them. No one can. The Message Translation of Romans 11:29 states, God’s gifts and God’s call are under full warranty—never canceled, never rescinded. God is in the full warranty business. Eternal life is under full warranty. Heaven is a full warranty contract. Being in Christ comes under full warranty. His gifts and calling in our lives—under full warranty. What has God called you to? Today? In this life? Remember you are under full warranty.
