DAILY PILGRIM PASSAGE
June 9, 2021
Remember when we used to sit down at the dinner table and our parents would ask how our day had been? Or When we did not have a job and our parents insisted we get out there and pound the pavement? Sometimes unless we are passionate about what we are doing, we are not in a hurry to tackle the task. We tend to not give our best to complete the task.
We are not passionate.
There are times when we are not passionate about our task to follow Christ in all our doing. In fact, sometimes we put God off. Other things take priority. We place things we want to do at a greater importance than our trek to follow Jesus, read and study the word of God, we do not look onto following Jesus word with passion. Why is it that we can easily find something else to do or be distracted by anything else? Our distractions cannot save us, Our other priorities cannot help us get what we want. And, we can certainly not make it to heaven if we cannot make time for God here on earth.
In Mark 8:34-37. And He summoned the crowd with His disciples, and said to them, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake and the gospel’s will save it. Let us take time to make room for God. Let us be passionate about how we serve and revere God. Let us be passionate and intentional about putting God first.
