Scripture: 1 Thessalonians 2:19
19 For what is our true hope, our true joy, our victor’s crown in all this? It is nothing if it isn’t you standing before our Lord Jesus the Anointed at His arrival. 20 You are our glory! You are our joy!
Our joy, our goal, our aim is to see others following God because they see what He has done in our lives and they want it to happen in theirs too.
That’s it. That’s why we as Christians do what we do. It is to prove to others that God is real & that He loves you. The whole reason that we meet and go into the community and worship and have outreaches is to share the good news of what God has done in our lives. I don’t think of myself as better than others, I just want them to have what I have. God blesses His children. It is a sweet way to live. Secure in the fact that God has you. That no matter what I see in front of me, I know that God is backing me up all the time. I want everyone to have that. That gives me pure joy. It’s not about me, it’s about you.
Lord, please help me to keep in mind as I walk through this life, that it’s not about me, it’s about others seeing you in me and coming to the realization that they can have you too. In Jesus Name Amen
