"And Jesus looking at him, loved him, and said to him, 'You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.' Disheartened by the saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions." ESV
Becoming a true follower of Christ is a simple act of faith for us, but the cost for this marvelous privilege cost Him so very much. Salvation is a free gift to ALL who will believe. True repentance and faith in Christ is not so easy because we find it inevitable that we manifest the life of God in our thoughts and actions. Being a Christian is not an easy mental agreement. It is living the life of God through our daily lives rather than living the way we think is right.
Lord, how can we ever give back to You for freely providing this most awesome gift of salvation and eternal life? All that we have is our selves and what we have collected here of material things. Take our lives and all that we have and use them for Your glory. In Your name we pray, Amen.
