A Junior Holy Spirit

John 3:16

Mark 10:13-16

Children swarmed around Jesus. They had been brought to Him just to receive His touch.

The disciples rebuked them.

Apparently they thought that the children weren’t capable of appreciating Jesus…maybe they thought that Jesus’ time could be better spent elsewhere…or perhaps they just didn’t like the thought of being recognized as followers of Jesus alongside a group of children.

Have you become as one of those disciples?

Do you catch yourself trying to decide who would be a good follower of Christ? Do you have the tendency to try to “screen” someone before you determine if they’re worth your time or prayers? Have you ever stopped yourself from sharing the Gospel because you didn’t want to risk being seen with that type of person?

Let me remind you that it isn’t your duty to determine who is fit for the kingdom of Heaven. It’s only your responsibility to share the Gospel, regardless of your opinion.

Share Jesus without discretion because He died for everyone.

Living With Gratitude

Colossians 3:17

Psalm 84:10

Have you surrendered yourself to the calling The Lord has put on your life?

Or have you balked at the job that He has lined up for you…thinking that maybe you’re not qualified, maybe you feel overqualified?

Go with what The Lord has laid out for you. Be grateful that He would entrust you with accomplishing His work. Know this: all jobs given by The Lord are a reflection of God’s love and acceptance of you. Even if you’re a doorkeeper, like the psalmist speaks of, you’re still in the family of God, you’ve been separated from the world. You have reason to rejoice.

Dedicate yourself to being your best version of what God has called you to be.
