Prompted to just thank Jesus for this saint who walks the highways and byways of this life....in Jesus Name, being the Church.....and inviting those of us....who can micro-manage our lives to join in and do just that ....be the Church and minister to each other and be ministered to.
Wouldn't you know that I came across this passage.... :)
Oswald Chambers can say things that I have trouble reading let alone saying....
To all who are looking for God, Himself, with no agenda.
"Till we all come....unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ." Ephesians 4:13
"....We are not here to develop a spiritual life of our own, or to enjoy spiritual retirement; we are here so to realize Jesus Christ that the Body of Christ may be built up.
Am I building up the Body of Christ, or am I looking for my own personal development only? The essential thing is my personal relationship to Jesus Christ - "That I may know Him." To fulfill God's design means entire abandonment to Him. Whenever I want things for myself, the relationship is distorted. It will be a big humiliation to realize that I have not been concerned about realizing Jesus Christ, but only about realizing what He has done for me.
My goal is God Himself, not joy nor peace, Nor even blessing, but Himself, my God.
Am I measuring my life by this standard or by anything less?"
Now there are so many in my life who have directed me to the Life that I live, now. May we continue to build each other up and continue to just point the way ......seek Him.....and find that He is closer than we think at times........may He continue His work in us and through us ...as us ... :) and may He build His Body up through us.....as He has done thus far through the saints that I have been blessed with knowing, because of Him.
Sorry .....feeling reflective today. Love you all....
