Nan - Choose Christ
After salvation, His plan for us is to grow to maturity as a believer. God wants us to be a disciple, to reflect the love and glory of Jesus to others.
Mary made the best choice, she chose the student-teacher relationship with Jesus. She chose a relationship with Him, it’s an on-going thing, a growing thing. Nothing, and nobody can keep you from a relationship with Jesus. We can lose many things in the world, things can be taken away. Nothing can wash away a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Heb 13:5 Rom 8:31-39 Nothing can separate you from the love of Christ. Nothing can take the Word out of your heart. 1PE 3:3-4 Inner beauty cannot be taken from us. Inner beauty is precious to Jesus, and it’s an imperishable beauty.
5 things to do every day to help us grow spiritually:
1. Wash: 1jo 1:9 Have your soul washed through confession.
2. Eat: Mat 4:4 We need to feed our souls with the Word.
3. Walk: close intimate friendship with Jesus. Listening and praying to Him.
4: Work: Eph 2:10 Working for Jesus is a joy, He gives you the opportunity and strength and rewards you for it.
5. Rest: We need rest for our souls. Jesus gives us rest when we come to Him.
