Following Jesus means that God can lead me somewhere that I have not planned.
Passionate proclamation of the Gospel brings God glory. God allows us to share in His work which is for His glory. Jesus’ work gives us new life; it is all God’s grace and we can do nothing to earn that new life because it is a gift from God given to us by the work of Jesus. New life – eternal life for those who believe. This is a gift for all, not just the one who believes in God and His son Jesus Christ but for the baker, the athlete, the criminal, etc…but your faith must be in Jesus, His son. We need to ask God to strengthen us in our journey for it is by grace that we have been saved (Eph 2:8-10).
Jesus Christ is the only mediator between God and man. Passionate participation in God’s work gives Him the glory and specific prayer displays confidence in Him. Good clean living is not enough(Jn 14:6). We have many opportunities to turn to God and say “I do” but one day those opportunities of service to God and others will one day close. We must persevere in our journey.
When the Creator gave man the experience of thirst it is because water exists to fill that thirst. Thirst for the Living God. We are called to a life of sharing, prayer and service to God and others
