Finding Hope in: Disciples of Christ
This is to my Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples. (John 15:8)
Today’s world is filled with people who are keepers of their own lives. They have become blinded by the riches of the world and are missing out on the richest jewel of all, which is the ability to save another life to Christ. Examine what a wonderful honor it is to assist the Maker in His great plan for all the world. We can help make the treasures of heaven a reality for others by sharing our testimony and exemplifying the love of Christ to each other. This may seem a tall order in today’s world, with its greed and selfishness; however, this is a false perception because Jesus has called us all to be disciples, a calling that has become lost in the noisy world that plays itself over and over on full blast. We must learn to tune out the world and step up in boldness, declaring Christ’s victory for all the world to see. After all, isn’t this what Jesus would want? What are you waiting for?
You need to be bold in declaring My truth because others need to hear My Word. Many people are still lost and need what you have to offer. Do not believe for one minute that you do not have a purpose. Do you not think that I know My flock? Rest assured that I know the number on your head and that I am not so concerned with all the details of your life as I am with whether you are working to fulfill them. It is in the process of coming to know My love for you that you develop a love for others, as well for yourself. As you step up in faith to become My faithful servant to help Me accomplish My plan here on earth, you are blessed as your inheritance is released to you with each step of faith. Do not worry about other people and all their affairs, but rather become the example of Christ that they can adhere to. Love one another, and do not become weary in doing good; soon, you will reap a harvest.
My brothers and sisters, if one of you should wander from the truth and someone should bring that person back, remember this: Whoever turns a sinner from the error of their way will save them from death and cover over a multitude of sins. (James 5:19–20)
