What's the plan -- your plan of action today, and how will you do it?

"Whatever you do, work at it will ALL YOUR HEART, as working for the Lord, not for men." – Col 3:23 #emph.mine

Do you seek Him? Do you worship Him biblically? Do you study the Bible and then wisely apply? Do you serve, and tactfully ask and listen and witness? Do you know Him, do ya walk in the Spirit, do ya speak up and boldly share His glorious Gospel with your friends love? 

My life is a painting created by God,
And as such I’ve nothing to boast;
Reflecting the image of Christ to the world
Is what I desire the most. —Sper

"We do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake." —2 Corinthians 4:5

So many times in the Bible we see followers of Jesus, who really loved Him joyously telling others.. not about religion but.. about Christ! When ya really know Him, it's hard not to. The Apostle Paul was one of them. He spread the Gospel starting where he was, and into distant regions of the world. It cost him too. He extended himself in love as a servant to meet the needs of others (2 Cor. 11:16-29). And he wrote this about this serving too: “We do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake” (4:5). We all can do that. 
Not all of us are called to become martyred for Jesus. Some are and will be. Not all of us are called to endure severe-hardships to spread the Gospel in distant lands he was. Some will be. But each of us is indeed called to Christ Himself... and each is responsible before Him as a servant of God to go share Jesus with people in your / in our sphere of influence. We all can't be full-time preachers, but we all can be full-time reachers. Christianity ain't just a Sunday thing, it is a 24/7/365 kinda thang and that's what young people of our day are looking for. They crave a lifestyle of loving authenticity! 
It’s our privilege to know the Lord and it's our joy to do this. You know it starts not in doing, but in being.. still before Him. You know it starts in the place of honest prayer and then in going, in serving, in telling. That can be worship unto God as well. And inner motives matter, they always do and always will. Be pure, be strong, be true.. to Him and to you. Be real for others too! Remember Him today, and do it ALL With All YOUR HEART simply to glorify the Lord.
