He has given us breath for one reason: to glorify Him. We are not here for any other reason. Not for our family, friends, success, material gain...just for Him. He desires a relationship with us beyond any earthly attachment we could have. Am I going above and beyond to cultivate a relationship with Him?
This life I've been given has been designed for me to go beyond myself and my comfort zone to love others with the love of Christ. Getting uncomfortable for the sake of the gospel should be a given. After all, the early church fathers did this without a second thought and they saw Jesus. How much more so will we be blessed who believe (and act) who haven't seen? Am I reaching beyond myself to love those around me?
Now it's your turn. Pull up a chair and your keyboard and get to typing. The rules are simple:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!
