Our Gift

Copyright (c) 2009-2017

If you knew you were going to stand before God, today (not in judgment, but meeting your very best friend) ... is there a gift you would like to present Him with? Do you plan to meet Him empty handed? Maybe you have a gift for God already. Perhaps, you never thought about it and would like to.

What would be the truest statement of your love? What type of service are you passionate about? Find the answer. Then, head in that direction. And if you still do not know, walk in the direction your heart leads and God will take you there.

It does not matter if God calls you to little or a lot. (Faithful is He who calls you, who also will do it. Let the weak say, "I am strong," the most necessary part. He meant it!) What brings inner completeness is serving in the center of God's perfect will (Lu. 12:50), wherein there is joy in that He empowers us to do so much more.

Consider His promise ...

"And every one that hath forsaken houses (churches), or brethren (religion), or sisters (family), or father (leader), or mother (counselor), or wife (soul mate), or children (followers), or lands (positions), for my name's sake (when He calls you), shall receive an hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life." Matthew 19:29

Would you suffer persecution from those you love, if necessary, in order to follow God? Micah 7:6

God never promised it would be easy. Though, consider the price of such gods ... "For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it." Matthew 16:25

Rewards for choosing God ...

"But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life." Mark 10:30

Wouldn't you enjoy discovering the joys, blessings, and rewards in completing your race? It isn't too late.
