God desires our complete dependence on Him. He loves us and wants us to fully trust in Him, especially when life is difficult. The obedience of Christ that was displayed, along with the grace of God, outweighs any disappointment or heartache from an earthly relationship. In the holiness of God, we can see that He alone is what will sustain our hope and meet us where we are.

As Paul explains in his letter to the Philippians, as a follower of Christ, we are called to walk in humility and love each other. It is difficult to work as one body if we are selfish and inwardly focused. Jesus led by example and took the form of a servant to show us what true humility looks like.

God's call on marriage mirrors Jesus' love and sacrifice for the Church. There is joy in true sacrifice and a desire to serve one another from a place of genuine compassion. Being grace filled and forgiving to one another in a marriage is a picture of Christ's unconditional love for us.

Ask yourself, "Am I selfish or am I a Christ follower?".  As Paul mentions in his letter, we bear a new nature. We are now image bearers of God, who is completely set apart and righteous. In living a life that is in pursuit of Jesus, we are called to die to our former, inwardly focused selves and live for Christ.

As Christians, we often look at our lives and think we are "okay" because we are living pretty good. We rarely recognize deception that has taken root in our hearts and walled us into our own desires. Paul challenges believers in Ephesus to examine their hearts and remember our lives are not our own if we follow Christ. We are called to lay aside our selfishness and allow the Spirit to renew our thoughts and attitudes.

In the Parable of the lost son, we are reminded by the truth of scripture that we are never beyond the sight or hand of God. It is never too late to turn back to God with a contrite spirit. Even one sinner dying to self causes rejoicing in the prescence of the angels. God extends an overwhelming amount of grace that is given when a repentant heart surrenders to Christ.

It is by God's grace we can turn away form sin and serve God and love others.

Just like the lady celebrates over her lost coin being found, there is great joy in heaven when someone surrenders to Christ. We need God and we can do nothing good outside of Him. We are called to be ambassadors for love and to give grace to those around us because we have been given grace in our deepest sin. God calls us to have total dependency on Him and to lead those around us to the truth of Christ.

God never changes but, He uses us in different ways. God gifts us with unique abilities and talents to bring Him glory and to point others to Christ. God has extended grace to us and now we extend that grace to others through the gifts He has given us. 

If you are a Christ follower, you have a gift and a responsibility to serve with that gift. If you do not use the gift you have been given, you will not be filled with the full joy that is made known in our pursuit of Jesus. Practicing your spiritual gifts unifies the body and makes you flourish in the grace and knowledge of Christ.

A good shepherd will leave his flock in the field to go and search for and rescue his lost sheep and bring him back again. Jesus is our Shepherd and will rescue our hearts and draw close to us. He gives an invitation for us to trust Him with everything and be a part of His flock. When we stray away, He is there. 

Jesus is waiting. If you do not allow Him to be your good Shepherd, you will miss Him.
