Many years ago I felt the call to missions
and I told my pastor. He said there was an
opening in the Missions Service Corps. He told me
I would have to raise my own support so I went
from church to church in our association speaking
on missions and I raised my support.
They sent me to Phoenix,
Arizona to the Indian Reservation. However,
I only stayed two days and called my pastor and
said this was not where I should be so he told me
to come home.
had Bible Stories for the children and different
activities. At the end of the first day I
went to the mission leader's room and asked him
what time we had devotions. He replied, "We
are too tired at the end of the day and too busy
at the start of the day for devotions".
I didn't say
anything to him but the more I thought about it,
the more I realized that the reason we were here
was to spread the Love of Jesus. If we didn't take
time for Jesus, to talk to Him and thank Him and
ask Him for help and guidance, then our labors
would be in vain.
Everything that we do in
life should be for Jesus. It is all about
Jesus. He is the Giver and Sustainer of
life. We must never forget Jesus or leave
Him out of our daily lives. If we don't
receive instruction and support from Him, we will
never be effective like He wants us to be for
you to always remember and include Jesus in your
daily activities. You will find that you
will have a much better day.
