The most important intention for your day

IMGP0619

I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.   John 15:5

The most important parts of your day are the parts where you acknowledge Jesus Christ. These are the moments when you are…

mindful of His presence with you.

giving thanks for His redemptive Gospel.

aligning your attitudes and actions with His agenda.

entering into your identity as His dearly loved child.

accessing the wardrobe of your new nature in Him.

seeking wisdom and guidance for leading.

fortifying your courage to follow Him.

Perhaps you have neglected these moments for meeting Jesus. Its time to build them into your day… (the options are endless and varied)

when you roll out of bed and your feet hit the floor.

when you open God’s Word and in-form your life with truth.

when you practice the verses you are memorizing.

when you pray with a meal.

when you greet that first human.

when you open your computer.

when you write that first text of the day.

when you read that first Facebook post.

when you make a transaction.

when you wash the dishes.

when you share a meal.

when you enter a room for a meeting.

when you wait on transit.

when you…waste your life… Hey! Jesus is there waiting for you to be mindful of Him… don’t waste your life.

Busy is not necessarily full of lasting fruit. Be intentional. Pick some moments. Abide in Jesus.
