How about you? What is the most important thing to you in this world? Is it your car? Maybe it’s your house or making more money. Maybe it is status in your profession and worry is driving you instead of trust in Christ. I do not believe that the things we have are evil in and of themselves, but the focus we put on them in a greater capacity than our faith and relationship with Christ can cause great difficulty in life. It can cause us to make our walk with God just something else we do or have and that is never what Jesus intended when he first asked the disciples to come and follow him. We are the continuation of the early church and need to have the same “first love” of Christ as they did.
Jesus did not just say in John 14:12 that, “...whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father” without us seeing the true fruit of those words.
Today, think about your walk with God and how much time you spend with him versus the other temporary loves of this earth. Don’t be in condemnation today, recognize what needs to change and start to walk/live a different path!
