All of Us

As we go about our daily lives, we can find ourselves justifying our actions in our minds. We can get into the trap of thinking that since we read our Bibles and have our personal time with God that doing this or that is ok. Especially if the things we are justifying to ourselves are not particularly bad things. 

This verse popped into my phone today as the verse of the day. Reading it, a couple things crossed my mind. First, that Jesus said we “must” do this. This is not just a suggestion. This is a command! And second, we must give ALL of ourselves to God. Not just the easy things in life. We must make the decision that we are going to put God before our comforts and interests. Did Jesus only give a part of himself on that cross? No, we gave all of himself, all the way to death. Ask yourself if you could do that. Its a hard thing to ask yourself, harder even to imagine, but that is what Jesus did for each and every one of us. He gave all of himself. 

We need to live each day with the future in mind. Living each day fully to please God. Giving him every part of ourselves, not just the easy parts.

    1. I’m so glad that you liked my first post. I am looking forward to seeing how God uses us in the future. I believe we are a good team and that God brought us together for a reason. The future has so many possibilities in His ministry and with our passion for a special needs ministry. Much love!

    1. 14 november, 2012Tack snälla du… Jo, jag tror att det sätt som vi faktiskt gör nu, visar, berättar utan censur, gör att kanske nÃ¥gon känner igen sig. Min känsla när jag var i eländet var ensamhet och of¶lsstÃ¥eÃre. Jobbigt och ledsamt.

    2. As for the animals, do we really know what their true ratzon is. What of the Lemming?For that matter, do we know what "ratzon" itself truly is, in the first place. Some say it is to want, i.e. desire. If this is the case, so why dose not everyone have a millon dollars. In addition, we do not find anywhere in the entire prayers the phrase "I want……or, I desire……Or is it that we (most of us) do not know how to correctly utilize our ratzon. E.g. want faintly and desire denial.Of one thing we can be certain of, once we discover true ratzon, our limits will reach beyond the skies.o
