Today, is my Lord's Day. Sonday.
As per normal, I made my way to worship at church. Worshipping God is very important to me. Anyone who has read Life with Lynnie (LwL) for any amount of time, knows this.
Nothing and no one is more important to me, than God.
Not family. Not friends. Not people from my church. Certainly not even those who are closest to me. For no one and nothing is more important to me than my Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
In any case, I made my way to worship and arrived a few minutes early. This gave me time to speak with a friend of mine, before worshipping.
If you know me, you know that I love worshipping my Lord. And, I especially love Communion Sunday. Like today, the first (1st) Sunday of the month.
God sure works in mysterious ways.
Before we began the communion part of our service, a thought popped into my mind. Something that I hadn't thought of for a very long time.
While I won't go into detail, I will say that I was reminded about being hurt in the past by someone who worships at my church. Even though I had long ago forgiven the person, I once again forgave the them and chose to put the past, back in the past.
During the time when the bread and wine were being distributed, I did what I normally do. I confessed to God my thoughts and feelings; I repented and thanked God for forgiving me.
This whole scenario reminded me of Matthew 10:38, "And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me."
Well friend, daily I pick up my cross and bear it. And, follow after my Lord. For there is no one more important than Him.
I do my best to walk the way He would want me to walk. In love, in forgiveness and by planting seeds so that God can water them, so that many will come to a saving relationship, through my Lord, Jesus Christ.
I pray it is your heart's desire to be worthy of Christ. For His love is true love. He gave His life for you, and was resurrected, so that you can know that eternal life awaits you, just as it does me.
All you have to do, is trust/believe on the Lord, Jesus Christ and you shall be saved (Acts 16:11).
Until next time...
