There are times when I just sit... and I ponder in amazement all that Jesus has done for me. Often I have to take a step back and think... Have I done my best for Him? Have I given my all for Him?? Does my life truly reflect what He has given for me?
It doesn't please me when I realize I've fallen short of my mark and so much more when I grasp how He must feel when He sees my weaknesses. However, Jesus is always there to forgive me and to pour out His love on me.
This world does not understand such love for humanity... and quite frankly there are times when I can't either. I just don't know if I understand the total sacrifice that was made for my life or anyone elses. Salvation is free and it is offered to anyone who would accept it, yet in all that was given... the world still seems a big part of who we are.
Jesus offered himself as a sacrifice to free us from a dark and rebellious life. He came so that we His children might live a separate life... apart from this world. So it begs this question... am I more like Jesus... or am I more like the world??
Lord, please help me to evaluate my life with honesty... and give me the strength to live a life that is pleasing to you at all times.
