Know the presence of Christ.

Greetings saints, 

Here we are in July, and half way through the year 2024. During this month we celebrate our Nation’s independence. While it is good to remember that, I want you also to remember your independence from sin with the sacrifice of Jesus. That is more and most important!

I want to share with you an article written by Lois Brant. This article really hit home to me and I believe is a challenge to each one of us. It is titled “Follow Me.”

I try to be a Christian. Every day I try to be a Christian and it’s a hard thing to do, I think. It seems I’m the only one following this way of life. I become so depressed, and the burdens I have to carry seem almost more than I can bear. I wonder sometimes is it worth it all.

I’m telling Jesus about myself; complaining about my lot in life and just how bad off I am, how people seem to be constantly against me. But Jesus has an answer for me that I too often forget. How weary He was carrying the load of sin for me; how many times He was persecuted by people while He spread the Word of God. He gives me renewed strength by telling me to be faithful to Him and live for Him and love others as He loves me. He also tells me to lift my cross and follow close to Him.

“Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ...” 2 Corinthians 5:20

There are things to be done in the church. A lot of things. I do my share, and more often than not, I believe I do more than my share. I can sing; I can pray; I can teach; I can play the piano; be the secretary of the Sunday School; be the superintendent; O I can do many things.

I’ve given so much of my time and my talents for Jesus. Just trying to be a Christian and walk in His footsteps. Why, I’ve given up a lot of things for Him. Even all the money I’ve given to the church would come in handy if I had it now. I really must be worth a great deal to Jesus. But just when I’m feeling proud of myself and boast and brag, I hear Jesus telling me this. How He could have been wealthy and famous but gave it all up to die on the cross to save me. He could have been great and had so much, but chose to give His life, His perfect life, for a sinner like me. Still loving me, for the way I sometimes act, He gently tells me to take His sacrifice and follow close to Him.

I see now Jesus what you must have gone through for me. Forgive me Lord when I complain. Forgive me Lord when I boast of the things I do for Thee. Forgive me and just tell me what you want me to do. Take my time, my talents and my possessions and use them to bring honor and glory to Thee.
