“With all this going for us, my dear, dear friends, stand your ground. And don’t hold back. Throw yourselves into the work of the Master, confident that nothing you do for him is a waste of time or effort.”
1 Corinthians 15:58 MSG
Don’t let anything distract us...let every seeming hindrance cause us to be ever more focused on who Jesus is and what He’s done. That what you want for our lives is what we focus on and what we love for passionately. That we’d live with a focus and clarity on one thing: Christ’s outrageous love for us! That we’d live for an audience of One!! That we’d:
Help me. Help us. Help us live whole-heartedly. Fully-alive. Fully present. Nothing hidden. Cause us to live lives that SHOUT that Jesus is our only treasure. And if Jesus is our only treasure, we have nothing to lose; nothing to hide; and nothing to prove. So, we can love with an abandon. We can pour out our love on others as You have so lavishly and scandalously poured out on us.
Let us live with absolute thankful hearts today!
For, we sure do love you️!
