I just had someone tell me that the way I love The Lord was contagious. Made me feel pretty good. To me, Jesus is everything and I find him completely intoxicating. If it spills over like a flood of Hope, Joy and Inspiration then I am happy. Mission accomplished.
As a Christian I am mandated to Live and serve God above all else. This is a journey to say the least because Jesus is the only soul to walk the earth completed in Christ. But he came. He bled. He died...
So you and I could be free from all that tries to tie us to that Tree.
He left with us the Holy Spirit who is our Counselor. He guides us. The Word says His sheep know His voice. His Voice is all together lovely.
A personal relationship with Christ is what drives us to obey Him, at least that's how it is for me. So how much more do I admire people who live and follow Christ and maybe they don't hear Him as clearly. He may speak to them in different ways or to a level appropriate for the Call on their life. He gives us His Spirit Abundantly but in direct proportion to what He requires of us. What a measure of Grace! For the Power of His Presence affects everyone differently. What may be a blessing to one could be a burden to another.
So love God. Cherish the gifts He has given you. Love others. Cherish the gifts He has given them as well. For we are His Dream Team built to Overcome. ~Nicole
