I want to start by saying this: I’m writing this to encourage or enlighten, to challenge (myself included)..
How many of us say we are Christians and actually follow Christ? long to know the heart of God, love the least of us, profess His name to the ends of the earth? It’s so easy to fall out of the race to His heart and become cozy in our stationary routines. Have we missed what it actually means to call ourselves Christians? Are we really telling EVERYONE we know that there is a better (and more fulfilling) way to live than just going through the motions -that God has something BIG in store for our lives on earth as well as in Heaven.. for eternity? personally, I sometimes lack in the “telling” part because someone else will tell them and besides that they probably already know Jesus, right? It’s so much easier to assume then to go outside of (some of) our comfort zones and do what Jesus called us to do | Matthew 28:18-20 ..Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and of the Holy Spirit. and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
So my challenge and prayer is this,
to be true Christ followers.. striving to know God personally, showing of His great grace, forgiveness, and love. not to be served but to serve and to take it upon ourselves to tell others of His promises. not just saying we are christian’s but showing, living and BEING Christ-followers.
