The joy that comes from this weekend is unforgettable. We remember the glory of our Lord’s sacrifice on the cross, and we can reflect on the amazing act of His resurrection. We have so much to be grateful for, and without the constant reminder of what He has done for us, we can lose sight of what truly matters, giving Him the glory in our everyday lives.
Today I was convicted to bring the Lord back into what I do everyday. I know I’m guilty of often times setting Him aside, and letting other things distract me. What should be the focus of every day is how to grow closer and closer to Him, and further away from the world.
What challenged me specifically was this quote from Sarah Young:
“I am with you and for you, your constant Companion and Provider. The question is whether you are with Me and for Me. Though I never leave you, you can essentially “leave” Me by ignoring Me: thinking or acting as if I am not with you. When you feel distance in our relationship, you know where the problem lies. My Love for you is constant; I am the same yesterday, today, and forever. It is you who change like shifting sand, letting circumstances toss you this way and that.”
I hope this challenges you today to live a life worthy of His calling, and a life closer to Him. Don’t worry about whatever might be on your plate today, or this week, but instead, continue to revel in the fact that He died specifically for you, to give you a life free from sin.
What a great God we serve, and what a wonderful day it is to give Him!
