"Jesus is calling us to move, ...to live a life after His heart."
The scariest verse in the bible for me is located in Matthew 7:12-13 when Jesus states, “Many will say to me on that day, 'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?' Then I will tell them plainly, 'I never knew you. Get away from me, you who practice evil!'" the part about this verse that’s eyes awakening is that Jesus desires to KNOW YOU. He does not care about all the hours you volunteer at church, He does not care about how much money you gave, He does not even care about how many people you brought to Him, He cares about KNOWING YOU. So pick up your Cross of “time,” died to self and bring it before the feet of He who is Jesus Christ.
The reward of Christ also involves a greater security than this world can ever provide. After Jesus talked about the sparrows in Matthew 10, he reminded his disciples of his love for them. In his words, “Even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” This proves that Jesus knows every detail of our lives, and that he cares for us deeply. This is the reason why He wants us to seek Him so we may know Him and He know us. He already carried the Cross for our shame, He stood for our failures, He literally carried our sins on His shoulders, so what can we say> what can we do? …we must offer our souls as a living sacrifice, our hearts completely to Him. My prayer for you today is that you offer you heart to God, to the one who gave it all, everything that You are should become His. Philippians 1:21 “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain”
