We have all heard that voice telling us to leave all and follow the Master. He is the only one to listen to and where he leads is the perfect way, even though it can be so dark. He calls us to leave the world and sinful ways, and walk the paths of righteousness, for His names sake.
He speaks again, to leave the dearest things and count them as nothing, compared to knowing His own self. To put desire and earthly joys to one side and seek closeness and security in His company.
The voice calls out to leave all and follow Him… JESUS, our dearest friend and the one we have set our hearts upon asks that we let it go and rejoice in trust. He is the Might God and Eternal Son of the Father. He is able. He is worthy.
JESUS may we think on you.
To be a daughter of the kingdom is the pinnacle of God’s grace toward a woman. It is the highest point of value and glory, yet also the place of service and dependence. It is GOD himself, through the sacrifice of his son JESUS CHRIST, that brings us to this place of joy, and the gracious HOLY SPIRIT who opens our eyes to believe.
This is the challenge for all those who follow JESUS and seek to walk as He did for the glory of God and not themselves.
God calls women into His family and to be rulers with Christ in His everlasting kingdom, joint heir with Jesus Christ, and partakers of His glory and power. The pathway to heaven is one of sacrifice and a laying down our lives for the sake of our Saviour and to be like Him in all we do and say. This will also involve giving ourselves up for the sake of others, seen and unseen sacrifices, and to serve those he sends us to. Some we may feel deserve these gifts, and others not, but this is not our judgment. Obedience to the father, is our standard, just as it was for The Lord Jesus, in all He did and said.
Let us not baulk at the journey, of the steepness of the hills, or the deep waters we must go through, but have our eyes fixed on His person, and our thoughts remembering His word and our feet every ready with the gospel of peace.
