For what is our hope or joy or crown of boasting before our Lord Jesus at his coming? Is it not you? For you are our glory and joy.
Text: 1 Thessalonians 1-2; Psalm 147
Our life as Christians is not about us. It is always about Jesus and the people whom He will reach through us. When we look to see the fruit of our lives, it is not within us. It is in the ones we reached for Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 2:19-20 brings these words:
The calling on our lives is always outward – always about other people. So – who has God put in your sights? Are there people in your life who do not yet know Jesus? Who are you praying for right now? Into whose life are you building the knowledge, the Word and ways of the Lord? What will the fruit of your life in Jesus be?
in Him, Mike
