This video was very inspiring to me but also very sobering in that I don’t get involved in the community as much as I should. I don’t reach out to my brothers and sisters as much as I should. I don’t proclaim about the place where Jesus is worshipped and praised eternally as much as I should. I don’t show the eagerness of one day entering into the place in which I await to give my all as much as I should. But I do spend an awful lot of time ensuring my safety, comfortability and convenience. I do spend a lot of time pursuing happiness more than I do pursing His kingdom. Lord forgive us.
What’s stopping us from getting involved with the space and lives around us? What’s stopping us from rising up from mediocrity and pursuing conviction in the glory of God. Be light to the world, be the fragrance and aroma of the grace of God today!
For God has not given us a spirit of timidity, but of power and love and discipline. Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord or of me His prisoner, but join with me in suffering for the gospel according to the power of God, 9who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was granted us in Christ Jesus from all eternity, 10but now has been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel, for which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle and a teacher. 2 Timothy 1:7-11
