This is a WORD from a dear friend(Joyce LifeandFavor):
God's Good Morning Family!!! Glory be to God, we have been ushered into yet another day! Not because we have been so good, and certainly not because we have earned the right or are so privileged. Oh no: it is The Grace of God that has and will Sustain... May I ask a question this morning? What is your Motivation? What motivates you in daily life? If your motivation is anything that the natural world offers (riches, popularity, success, physical gratification, etc.), what about another person (earning respect, having them serve you, getting your way, experiencing “true love,” etc.)... In ANY of these things, I must say; Prepare because disappointment is Inevitable.. From God’s perspective, there is one primary Motivation for life. That Motivation is "Christ Jesus"...
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us".
As Believers in Christ we are to put aside life’s excess baggage, not only the “personalized sin” that hinders us, but also the everyday deterrents that threaten to slow our spiritual progress.
"Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God". (Hebrews 12:2)When we are fixed on Jesus, devotions are a joy, not a chore. When we are fixed on Jesus, praying and being in the Word are aspects of living we cannot live without and will joyfully anticipate. When we are fixed on Jesus, ministering for the benefit of others is something we race to do, not something we are recruited to do.... With this in mind I say again; God's Good Morning Family!!!! Our Motivation for life is not difficult to understand; IT'S JESUS!!!! Let’s stay fixed on Him. Amen? Yes and Amen!!! ♥ you ALL!!! Go, Be and Also Do All That GOD Has CHOSEN You To Do!
