Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. ” Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come follow me.” Mark 10:21
Jesus sees the pitiful state of our hearts and yet loves us deeply. We hold unto things so much so, that we lose focus of why we are saved. We must not focus on ourselves too much less we become an idol unto ourselves.
This is a call to step out of ourselves, to think, act, and live from the premise of “The collective”, God’s Kingdom.
Following Christ, being a Christian is a personal relationship with Christ, however, it is also for the good of the collective, to bring All people – Nations to Him.
Lord help us to step out of our own needs to look into the needs of others. Many are dying hopelessly Lord, help us to point them to the cross I pray.
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
