Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24 (ESV)

Brothers and Sisters in Christ, as we approach the season of Lent, I pray that we would take this time leading up to Holy Week to reflect on the sacrifice of our Lord and Savior Jesus. Just as Jesus gave everything for us, we should in turn give our best to Him.

When God calls on you do you say “Yes Lord!”?

Where God gives you talents and abilities do you offer yourself to serve?

At that very moment when you stop saying “No God” or “Not now Jesus”, you will allow the Holy Spirit already working in you and with you, through you and around you to shine. You will be the hands and feet of Jesus. You will do God’s work. You will proclaim, just as Peter proclaimed, “You are the Christ.”
