My purpose....my duty.....his will!
I had a beautifully blessed Sunday. We had a Missionary come to our church to speak for us both services. All my children,but two grandchildren and my youngest son were there for each service. I got up once,and coming back to the pew where I was sitting....I just looked at those two filled pews...filled with my children,and I just had to give a breath of thanks to my Lord. Life can be so hard and complicated at times....we may fail to do just what we should,but when we still know in our hearts what is right and who comes first then I believe our feet are still on the narrow path...the road less traveled. My children nor I are perfect...we make mistakes...we fall down...we get back on our feet,with God's help and go forth. Such as life in this world as a believer...the difference is....are you an over comer? We were encouraged by this Missionary to press on..to go into the highways and the byways....to seek the lost...to bring Christ to them....is that not our purpose? We are not on this earth to gain worldly treasures and wealth. As Christians,followers of Christ..we have a message of GOOD NEWS to bring to the world of the unsaved.....how many lost souls will you encounter today? What will your response be to your encounter? We don't have to travel the world to reach the lost...they are already near to us...in our own communities and neighborhoods.
Let the Holy Spirit be your guide to reach them.
To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne,even as I overcame and am set down with my Father in his throne. Rev 3:21
Blessings on your week dear friends....Shelley
