Christ does not change and is the one constant in our constantly
We who follow Christ aim for the mark He has set for us, even though we
continually fall short. Hopefully, this series of successive approximations
gradually leads us closer and closer to Jesus.
He is our compass and our inspiration. He is our ultimate goal. Our
efforts will never be sufficient without the Holy Spirit working within us.
Yet, we must also do our part. Desiring God and obeying His Word, we
can embrace a higher love and refuse to be complacent or half-hearted in
our devotion to Christ.
Looking to His example of sacrificial love, we want to emulate the life he
lived, and we communicate the Gospel through a closer and closer walk
with our Lord.
As we travel to our destination it isn’t surprising that our Savior often
points out the lost and lame lambs along the road. “What will you do to
lighten the load of this little one?” he asks. “Remember what you do for
the least of these you do for me!”
The journey actually becomes the destination as we allow Jesus to lead
us. If our ideas of what our goals should be become too important, we
may miss the opportunities God brings in each moment.
Christ constantly asks, “Will you feed my little lambs? Can you see my
face in theirs?” How will you respond?
