I’ve been reading The Pilgrim’s Progress. Oh my goodness, is this book intense! I’m not sure what I expected but I don’t think I expected it to be quite so deep. I’m glad it is cause I need it. I think every Christian should read it. It’s an amazing picture of the Christian walk.
This morning, while finishing up Part 1 of the book, I was reminded of this video. I came across it a few months ago and fell in love with it immediately. I feel like I should watch it every morning to pump me up and remind me of my reason for living. While God provides beauty and wonder and friends and family for our benefit and enjoyment, ultimately, I’m not here for me – I’m here for Him. Period. I’m here because He first loved me and my mission in life as His follower is to lead others to His love. That’s my reason for living. It’s so easy to let that get lost in the shuffle but it’s imperative that our calling stay front and center in life or we’re left vulnerable to Satan’s attacks on our souls.
CHRIST IS MY REASON FOR LIVING. IS HE YOURS?
Y’all stay blessed 🙂
