A serious post on Friday? How can this be? Oh well, it’s what you get.
It’s been an intense season of life and ministry for me lately. It’s no excuse, but it sure surfaces the reality that I easily care more about what God does in our ministry than just being with Jesus.
The story of the women who annointed the head of Jesus in Mark 14 resonated with me yesterday. She cared more about being with Jesus than the cost of the perfume. She would do anything to be close to him. Everything else was secondary, including her iPhone.
I like to say that all I do is win, but the truth is…I fall short. Miserably short.
But the story doesn’t end there, mired in my personal failure. There is hope. Like any good story you have to walk through conflict before reaching the sweet peace of resolution.
Hebrews 4 beckons us to draw close to the throne of grace. Jesus tells me to draw near and find rest and peace in him. So thankful that in my weakness I can draw near.
Hhhmmm, guess I’m preaching the Gospel to myself again. Hope that’s cool with you.
