A Challenge MOST cannot meet 2017-53
To those of us that are of the Christian faith I ask: What does God and/or Jesus Christ want or ask of us to do?
We claim to be Christians, but do we, as a whole, really follow the dictates of our faith – Christianity?
OR, do MOST of us, a large majority, just do what we feel is enough, but not the whole?
How much of us, does Jesus, Our God, want from us? If, you answer, as much as we can give, I doubt if that is the correct response!
I really believe that most of us cannot give to God what He wants. Some yes, MOST no!
What He wants is ALL that we have! NOT a smidgen, not a little, NOT part, but ALL! I am NOT talking about just money, possessions, or the like, but instead, something that is more tangible and personal- OUR LIFE, with all of our actions, our thoughts and beliefs, our very BEING!!!
What He wants and gets are different things, but there is a plus side. He takes what He can get, meaning just as the way we are today. Not perfect, all sinners, less than 100% in giving, complacent, waffling, mediocre, and just plain us, the way we are.
I think it would be hard to give ALL to God. Not very many of us could or can do so. BUT, I also believe, God understands this and as such, He loves us the way we are in life, even though we could do better in this respect.
God is a good God. I say He is even great, and I love God for this and always will do so.
Thanks be to God,
