Missing the Point

Has this ever been a picture of you with the Lord?

How often have we set up our own precautionary devices when following the Lord where ever He’s leading us? “Just in case the Lord doesn’t work this out, I’m gonna (fill in the blank).”

‘Self-preservation’ is not of the Lord’s concern and shouldn’t be ours either. Jesus Christ is not interested in making sure we save our’selves’. He saved us from our self-life long ago. He gave us a new life to live by – His life. What a gift! We can’t fully experience the freedom of His trust if we don’t let go first.

Let’s throw off the flotation devices and fix our eyes on Christ as we walk with Him where He leads!

    Oh yes Floshea! That’s a funny picture, and all too true! Poor Jesus 🙂 I’ve been thinking a lot about Peter looking at Jesus when he was walking on the water and how desperately we need to keep our eyes on Him too, or we will indeed sink. But while we look at Him we are held up in His power and His might. Great cartoon and great reminder of my tendency to look for flotation devices! Thanks sister 🙂

      Lol! Getting our eyes off Him can happen so fast! Thankfully He’s always standing and waiting 🙂
