The wonders of being in Christ!
Then Peter said to Him, “Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us.”
We forget that we are nothing without the grace of God. That anything good we have we have received from the Lord.
We start to walk by sight and not by faith.
Whether we want to admit it or not, we more and more judge our relationship with the Lord according to the things that eye can see and ear can hear.
The things of Christ that used to be much more than enough, for us they have become old hat.
You see, most of us, when we first believed in Christ, we had the heart of an eleventh hour laborer.
Somehow, bearing the burdens and enduring the scorching heat got to us, and we became ungrateful laborers in God’s vineyard.
The Prodigal Son had to lose everything before his heart learned how precious it really is just to have a seat at the Father’s table!
God wants you living the life He designed for you in eternity past…because YOU WANNA!!! You wanna be the sons and daughters of your Father!
And the best way to bring our hearts back to being Mr. WE WANNA hearts is by renewing the simplicity of our devotion to Christ.
