Good morning all,
The word of the day is “euchre.” Life is filled with stuff that tries to take our focus of the all the great stuff we should be doing. One of my mentors once told me that the good stuff sometimes will get in the way of us doing the great things that are in store for our lives. I know that in the scriptures we see that the Evil One does whatever he can to keep our eyes from God. The churches back in the day even knew that stuff would get in the way. The writer of Hebrews allows the people in the church to understand that all efforts need to be given towards following God, with an attitude of praise and obedience.
Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience.
I know that tons of stuff in each of your lives seems to be good and what you need to be doing. I would encourage each of you to remember that we cannot give up in our attempts to follow God through your actions, prayer, and praise times. My prayer is that we come to obey know eternal life with the believers, and that we see Jesus one day as a family… when we enter his rest. Until then, we cannot let the Evil One euchre, or trick us, into thinking that we can live any other way that completely for Christ.
Praying for you,
