Whenever you see someone outside the body of Christ, think: “This person needs the Good News.” Expand that to this: “This person needs to hear the Good News.” Expand that further still to this: “This person needs to hear the Good News from me.” If not from you, then from whom?

A measure of one’s seriousness about God’s #mission to save is how much one is willing to forego in order to reach the lost.
Remember: Having a morning devotional does not consist of checking your Twitter lists of Bible, prayer, and church.
On the day of judgment, no one will hear pronounced from the throne, “Well said!”
“His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master'” Mt 25.21.

Self-delusion is strong in the human being. “If we say that we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves and the truth is not in us” 1 John 1.8.
Often, God’s people live great conflicts, seen or unseen, mental or moral, spiritual or relational. They are not defined by such, but are called to them as saints are called to engage the battle against the enemy. They wage this battle always aware of their frailty, always dependent upon the strength of God’s Spirit.
