Probably not a lot to write today; just some I’ve been thinking stuff.
This daily grind also known as this day-to-day stuff we do when we drag (or jump) ourselves out of bed to do breakfast (or not), out the door to work or not (but work at home); gas in the vehicle, a few things from the store, on and on you know the drill: life! The stuff we do because we live here on planet earth – it’s for our survival, yours mine and ours. Is that it? Is there more to this it, than that?
Yep. There is! For sure there is for those who have entered the family of GOD. It occurred to me again yesterday that when the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD convicted me and I agreed with Him that I needed a Savior and that JESUS the Christ (YESHUA) was the only Savior and I said yes, that there was no reason after that for Him to leave me here to do this daily grind. I mean it was a done deal. I said yes. Heaven was home. Lets go. But that did not happen. And after these what, 4 decades plus since then, I’m still here.
Why? What’s the point? I believe I got it!
Obviously, this human experience has requirements. See paragraph 2.
The daily grind.
But what if. What if our daily grind and even our play time and our play time toys; what if all that is designed and provided to be tools? Tools to connect us with people. People looking for answers. People wondering is this it! People needing a Savior but not sure there is One or how to connect with Him.
Our daily grinds are the perfect springboard connectors. Our daily grinds are the way DADDY GOD intends for us to share His Good News. That’s the only reason He has left us here. I’m convinced He’d much rather have us at home with Him!
But . . .
18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” [source] Matthew 28: 18-20 NLT
Heaven is a big place . . . there needs to be lots and lots of people there.
2 Peter 3:9 (KJV) 9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. [source]
1 Corinthians 3:9 (CJB) 9 For we are God’s co-workers; you are God’s field, God’s building. [source]
I was wordier than I expected. 🙂
