Giving all of ourselves

Swap Blog looks at the devotion of world-class athletes to their sport and wonders if Christians are that devoted to the Lord:
God calls His people to be FULLY devoted to Him, His word, His ways, His work, and their fellow believers. Many times we are not willing to give all, but only part or only the part that is easy or the part that is safe to God. It is a sad thing that athletes, politicians, actors, and alike are more willing to give all they have to protect their views, their reputation, their ideas, and their beliefs then the people of God. This should be seen as a challenge for those that are called to be God’s people. We should be willing to give all that we have to both stand for God and protect God’s people

. . . . what I want to challenge you to do today is to be willing to go as far as it takes, even if it means all that you hold dear, to defend Christ and those that Christ brings to Himself.
Excellent thoughts.

Thanks for the link, always a honor to be on your blog.

Most of all it is great to hear that your relative in Mboro is going home soon and that all the cancer was "gotten". We will continue to pray for their recovery and your strength in this time.

Bob was a good fill in and we enjoyed his stuff, but good to have you back in the posting chair as well. As always thanks for having a great blog, and one that encourages us to work harder on ours every time we visit.

Stay strong, be couragous, and serve God in all things.
