What Gets Forfeited


"Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest" (Matt.11:28).

When a person turns away from Jesus, they turn from the only example of a right living man who has ever existed. A man whose enemies could not find any fault in. A man who could chastise Pharisees for their hypocritical living and drive the money changers from the temple, and then call in gentle tones for the little children to be brought to Him. Jesus was the perfect teacher... When a person turns from Him they throw the pilot, compass, (GPS) and charts overboard and set themselves afloat on the uncharted sea in a rudderless, leaky and sinking boat of human wisdom... They inflict themselves with the disease of sin and refuse to consult with the only physician who can heal it.They starve themselves spiritually because they have thrown away the bread of life and die of thirst because they don't take in the "living water..." They make their inexorable journey toward judgement without the only lawyer who can adequately plead their case, and become sheep without a shepherd when they forget that "The Lord is my shepherd..." They get torn, tossed and bruised by the storms of life in forgetting that "God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble" (Psa.46:1). If I have painted a bleak picture, it has been done it on purpose. Jesus called us to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world... Lets all, by word and example, reflect Jesus' teaching in our lives so that people around us will not forfeit those things that Jesus offers. While we are at it, lets be grateful for those things in our lives...

Have a great day... Go about doing good.... Love mark Phil.4:11
