Of Pilgrims and Pioneers - B
Pilgrims and pioneers cross unchartered lands, ford raging rivers and defeat wild animals. They have a heart to conquer and a mind to finish. You too can pursue such victories in 014 and:
- only store up good things in your heart that you may overflow well ~ Mt 12:34-35, Lk 6:45
- shine in righteousness and lead many to righteousness ~ Dan 10:12
- learn and live in the contentment of Jesus ~ 1 Tim 6:6
- desire the Holy Spirit daily to pour over you ~ Eph 5:18
- be alert to temptation ~ Lk 22:40
- not sin today ~ Jn 8:11
- seek His purity and humility ~ Dan 10:12 and
- desire for Jesus to increase and for you to decrease ~ Jn 3:30.
Your identity as a pioneer may never become a Wikipedia entry, you probably will never have a red carpet rolled out for you, or watch your name illuminated in neon lights - but your name IS in the Book of Life.
The day WILL arrive for a divine welcome party, and then you will hear:
well done my good and faithful servant ... come and share your master's happiness. (Matt 25:23)
This one sentence alone ensures all that you attempt for the Lord 2014 will be wothwhile.
