Whenever you set off on a journey – you know, one of those good journeys – eating healthy, losing weight, dealing with something in your life that you know needs dealing with – there’s a risk that at some point you end up going off the rails.
There’s many a Christian today whose walk with Jesus has gone “off the rails” too. Sure, you had the best of intentions, but somehow you’re praying a lot less, reading your Bible a lot less, thinking about God a lot less, blessing others with His love a lot less these days than perhaps a year ago, or five years ago, or even longer.
If perhaps you find yourself in that place just at the moment … maybe, just maybe, that’s why God has brought us together today. Maybe, just maybe, there’s something that He wants to speak from His great and mighty heart into yours today.
Philippians 1:6 I am sure that the good work God began in you will continue until he completes it on the day when Jesus Christ comes again.
Listen, God ain’t done with you yet! You gave your life to Him way back when because He called you, He touched you, He opened Himself up to you. It was His choice … and He is not in the business of abandoning you. And if you feel Him calling you back today, answer that call. Spend some time praying. And yes, by all means, ask Him for forgiveness.
Okay, perhaps your walk with Jesus has gone off the rails. Perhaps you regret that and feel guilty about that. But listen, Jesus died for you to pay for your guilt. That’s why …
I am sure that the good work God began in you will continue until he completes it on the day when Jesus Christ comes again.
That’s His Word. Fresh … for you … today.
