God Defines You!

You are lacking in one thing. Go, sell what have, and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven; then come, follow me. - Mark 10:21
Not everyone chooses to follow Jesus. Unlike Mathew and Zacchaeus, the rich young man was not prepared to give up his treasure and surrender to the love of Jesus, thus, he walked away. We do not know if he eventually surrendered his life to Jesus. Are we like the rich young man and afraid of making the changes necessary to give ourselves to God?
The first step of surrender can be the most difficult. Many of us do not feel worthy to walk with Jesus. We harbor unlove or unforgiveness for self and others. If God can forgive me, why can’t I forgive myself?
If I am good enough for God, why would I think I am not good enough for myself?
Each day give yourself to the love, grace, and mercy of Jesus Christ. You will never be disappointed and will live each day for the Glory of God!
God loves you no matter what!
