Never say die? Wouldn’t it be great if we put as much “never say die” energy and commitment into the spiritual challenges of life as we do into the mundane things of living?
Think about it. If you’re looking for a challenge big enough to suit your “never say die” nature, you probably need look no farther than a neighbor down the road or a shut-in in your congregation. People in need are all around us and the challenge is great.
God’s Word tells us: “‘ For them I sanctify myself, that they too may be truly sanctified’” (John 17:15-26).
God doesn’t need your money. He does want your service, your willingness to sacrifice and your commitment to spending your time in serving others. No, He wants you and I to do what might seem impossible to the unbeliever in this world. Take care of our brother’s needs even before we think of ourselves. The task may be daunting at times; but, with Jesus, the one who can and has done the impossible as our guide, who knows what we may be capable of?
We pray. “Heavenly Father, ‘I don't ask You to take them out of the world, but do keep them from the world.’ What a beautiful prayer! God, keep me from the world. The pressures sometimes are so great to conform to the world, to the worldly patterns. In Jesus name. Amen”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.
Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6:34)
