It’s Not About Us

May 4, 2014

While we enjoy the goodness and awesomeness of becoming one with our Savior when we accept Him as Lord,  we often stop short of our purpose by becoming focused on ourselves.  In the beginning, that is appropriate as we develop our relationship with Jesus, but as we grow older our story must expand.  Like natural children, they perceive themselves as the center of the universe until they begin to grow up.  It is the same in spiritual growth. Paul says in Hebrews 5:13  “For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe.”  If all we seek is lightweight encouraging words, we will miss the mark of becoming what we are destined to be……a witness for others to come to know Christ. 

Psalm 67:1,2 “God be merciful to us and bless us,

And cause His face to shine upon us, 

THAT YOUR WAY may be known on earth,
YOUR SALVATION among all nations.”

God help us to be billboards for your existence, proof of your goodness, expressions of your love, and acknowledgements of your righteous judgements and truth. Shine Your light on us so that we can point to You!
