Why are we the way we are ..and doing what we do?
Sometimes people ask us about all this. It's a good question.
What's our main passion and purpose for running this race that God has set before each one of us?
Isn't it to know Jesus Christ well and then to make Him well known? Sure it is ..in that order.
The Apostle Paul (a fisher of men and women, boys and girls) sure felt this way inside. And he properly set His priorities saying, "That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection, and the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death.." (Phil. 3:10).
Hey gang, I personally like doing, doing, doing ..and earning, earning, earning, but grace is free and there's a rest to enter into in Christ. Are you taking the time to step aside and pray? Do you still thirst for this time with Him. Is Jesus still the delight of your heart, mind and soul? Personal worship and intimacy with Christ must come first.
Missionary Paul basically explained that this was what mattered to him most, yes, above all else and guess what... it should really matter to us as well. Be encouraged to do your first ministry before you do other ministries. I've always said this because it's so important. What a joy to be with, to pray earnestly, to seek, to wait on and hear..just to bless the Lord's heart for who He is! After that we can pray for others and go tell em huh.
