Luke 13

Father, thank You for Jesus and the life I have in Him!

****************************************************************************

A bystander said, “Master, will only a few be saved?”

He said, “Whether few or many is none of your business.  PUT YOUR MIND ON YOUR LIFE WITH GOD.  THE WAY TO LIFE — TO GOD! — IS VIGOROUS AND REQUIRES YOUR TOTAL ATTENTION.  A lot of you are going to assume that you’ll sit down to God’s salvation banquet just because you’ve been hanging around the neighborhood all your lives.  Well, one day you’re going to be banging on the door, wanting to get in, but you’ll find the door locked and the master saying, ‘Sorry, you’re not on my guest list.’

“You’ll protest, ‘But we’ve known you all our lives!’ only to be interrupted with his abrupt, ‘Your kind of knowing can hardly be called knowing.  You don’t know the first thing about Me.’

“That’s when you’ll find yourselves out in the cold, strangers to grace …” (v 23-28 MSG)

Father, may my total attention be focused on serving and honoring You.  In my day-to-day activities, help me to seek Your face, Your strength, and Your honor.  Keep my mind centered on You, on my life in You, whether that’s an easy task, when things go well, or a tough one full of trials.  Keep my heart open to Your Spirit within me as You daily fashion me to be just like Jesus.  Amen.
