Have you ever struggled with why others may not be as excited about the same ministries that you are? Have you ever wondered why some seem to be so complacent about something you’re so passionate about?
Today’s word from the Word can help. If you are receiving this post through a feed and you can’t view the video, please click the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6T4qOHYtU0
“Then Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following, who also had leaned on His breast at the supper, and said, “Lord, who is the one who betrays You?” Peter, seeing him, said to Jesus, “But Lord, what about this man?” Jesus said to him, “If I will that he remain till I come, what is that to you? You follow Me.” John 21:20-22
While the Lord gives a universal call to all who follow Him to live holy lives, to be honest, kind, noble and good…to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to maintain a good testimony during our short stay on this earth, He also has given each of us a very unique path to take in our own personal journey.
Sweet friends, the Lord has specific works for you to do while you’re on this planet. Don’t waste time wondering why others aren’t doing the same thing. I realize that many don’t seem to be fervent about what you’re doing…in fact, many aren’t fervent about what they are supposed to be doing, but remember what Jesus said to Peter, “What’s that to you? You follow Me!”
Before you go, would you take a few minutes to ponder these questions about your own life and see if perhaps you need to more passionately pursue that which Christ has called you to?
What is it that God has called you to do?
How much time do you spend working at what Christ has called you to?
What is preventing you from doing what He has called you to do?
What can you do today to begin your passionate pursuit of that which Christ has called you to?
