It's Monday!!! A new week to begin, recommit and/or keep pressing on in our pursuit of being with and becoming like Jesus.
As a church custodian I always had the sense God was with me while cleaning. This kept me from sweeping dirt under the rug because that's not something you do when your "Boss" is looking over your shoulder. That kind of relationship with God, though helpful, isn't the full relationship Jesus' suffering, death and resurrection made possible. The fuller relationship we are seeking is to have hearts and minds like Christ, to be fully in love with Him and to have, in ourselves, His same wants.
1. Pray (Ask God to make you his servant today)
2. Study (Read a chapter in a gospel listening to what the Spirit is saying)
3. Share (tell a friend or your group what you learned and your experience being with Jesus today)
I can plod. I can persevere in any definite pursuit. To this I owe everything.
