When it comes to this life on Earth, do people know me for my faith in Jesus Christ and my love toward others? If they do know me for this, what does it look like? Is it a faith in Christ that does not crumble in times of distress, produces love for others, sacrifice instead of selfishness, and holiness over comfort? Or does it something that sits on a shelf every week, says that I am better than you, instead of love, its legalistic and prideful?
This thinking should change how I pray about being a follower of Jesus Christ. I need to always be thankful for Christ saving me, a sinner. Pursuing wisdom and knowing Him and being known by Him through the power of the Spirit of God that lives in me. Keeping in mind that I fail, we all fail, but understand the Hope to which I have been called and the inheritance that awaits! Glorious day! The same power that God worked in Jesus Christ, which raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His Father’s right hand, is the same power that is coming towards me and those who believe in Him for Salvation. And the ultimate result of this Power of God has “put all things under His feet and gave Him as head over all things to the Church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.”
