The high and holy calling we have as children of God is no small thing. We are to treasure the love that suffered and died for us; treasure it so much we tell others that they can treasure it too.
My time with the Lord seemed to center on the call to a newness of life this morning. We are not to live in the old ways...the deadness of self. Pride, laziness, self-indulgence, earthly security from money and good works--those are a waste (emptiness and lies!). The Holy Spirit brings power, purpose and a divine path but it isn't walked on with human strength. Let's throw ourselves on Him and see what He will do!
My reading finished off Joel this morning: there are multitudes in the valley of decision. Let's live so they decide for Jesus and enjoy His riches!
