Not An Option

With all the fraud and corruption today, one wonders if there are any “good guys” left. One would begin to think it is a “self-serving” world. Then, again…

…To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God…(Acts 23:18)

 Self-serving? Only one’s ego would believe that. Only one’s ego would believe that “self” is in charge, but the truth is, you are either a puppet of Satan’s or a servant of God. “Choose this day, whom you will serve” Self is not an option!

Something Beautiful

“Something beautiful, something good,

All my confusion He understood.

All I had to offer Him was brokenness and strife,

And He made something beautiful of my life.”

(Bill and Gloria Gaither)

Company is coming and you want to look your best.

Job interview and you want to show them how qualified you are.

Sunday morning and you want others to think of you as a strong Christian.

On different occasions, outside the privacy of our own home, we want others to see us at our best. We want others to see that we are in control of our life, that we are happy, even if that is not the case. It’s a matter of self pride for each one of us.

We “talk the talk,” even if we can’t “walk the walk.”

All too often, we approach our relationship with God in the same way. Because it is so important for us to be attractive and acceptable, we convince ourselves that God will judge us as if it was a job interview or inspect our house as if He was company.

The truth is…God wants you to come as you are, not trying to clean up, not trying to impress. He knows your situation…He knows your heart.

His arms are waiting for you…just as you are.
