Thanks to a grand-daughter's post on facebook, I read something today that made me think . . .
Whenever you feel WORTHLESS. . . remember once you were the fastest sperm.
It's funny, but seriously . . . if you think about it, you are not here by accident. You didn't accidentally bump into that egg all those years ago. You PURPOSEFULLY swam your little tail off to get to that egg.
Did you ever wonder what all the rush was? Did you ever wonder what was so gosh darned important that you had to be the first one to reach the egg? Well, I have an idea . . . before you were born you couldn't wait to get your life started.
Jesus knew you before you were born. The Bible says God knew you in your mother's womb. He wants to have a relationship with you, but more than that He wants YOU to have a great life.
“I’ve loved you the way my Father has loved me. Make yourselves at home in my love. If you keep my commands, you’ll remain intimately at home in my love. That’s what I’ve done—kept my Father’s commands and made myself at home in his love.
“I’ve told you these things for a purpose: that my joy might be your joy, and your joy wholly mature. This is my command: Love one another the way I loved you. This is the very best way to love. Put your life on the line for your friends. You are my friends when you do the things I command you. I’m no longer calling you servants because servants don’t understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I’ve named you friends because I’ve let you in on everything I’ve heard from the Father.
“You didn’t choose me, remember; I chose you, and put you in the world to bear fruit, fruit that won’t spoil. As fruit bearers, whatever you ask the Father in relation to me, he gives you.
“But remember the root command: Love one another. John 15:9-17
Jesus is for you!! Is that right? Yes!!
He's for me, I know because I invited Him into my life and I hang out with Him every day. But He is for you too! That's the really cool thing about Jesus; He is for each of us individually. The most amazing part is that as real and close as I can be to Jesus every day . . . you can be even closer to Him that I am. How that is even possible flips my brain out sometimes.
So what are you doing just sitting there reading jokes on the internet? What are you doing instead of telling people your story?
Jesus wants your life to be PURPOSEFUL and He commanded us to LOVE. Love people on purpose. You cannot accidentally live for Jesus anymore than you were "accidentally" born.
If you haven't invited Jesus into your life . . . why not? It's an amazing life, but even more amazing when you have the God of the universe to share it with. You can click the link that says "Do You Know Jesus" in the right-hand side bar or you can message or email me anytime and I will share with you what I know.
Once, for some of us a LONG time ago, we were the best swimmers in the bunch, so what are you waiting for . . .
. . . start swimming!!
