You don’t have to live life long to discover that our world is good at “taking” . .
When it comes to friendships we all know the “feeling” where “time generosity” is measured . . . while many of those same friends find an abundance of time to “talk” about their own life on Facebook and Pinterest and the like . . . the “look at my life” generation has never been more numerically connected, and never more spiritually and relationally disconnected from friends and family right under their own nose.
Fortunately, Jesus Christ understands the “selfish” poverty of our soul and the unavoidable eternal consequences if we don’t mercifully experience an extreme heart-makeover provided through the cross of Calvary and the grace of a risen King who gave all. From II Corinthians 8 we read,
“I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich.”
This is David “JB” Miller with a question: Will you be content to do the necessary, the dutiful, the appropriate . . having the appearance of Christian goodness . . or will you be so lost in gratitude to the unimaginable heaven-sent soul rescue of Christ that you will search for the grace and strength to give your life on a level of genuineness which is always . .
. . more than eyes can see?
