Who Do You Want to Be?
Luke 17:12-14 Have you ever asked a child, what do you want to be when you grow up? I have neighbors, and when asked this question, they answered, a Fireman; Doctor; Police; Nurse; Teacher! I had always wanted to be a lawyer, not just any lawyer, but one like Perry Mason!! My thoughts then took me to Biblical characters. Who would I want to be? David - Giant Slayer; Solomon- the wisest man; Samson - the strongest man; Peter - water walker; John - the revealer of End Times; Daniel - the lion tamer; Paul - the church planter; Moses - the Liberator. When I gave this some thought, my answer is that I want to be "the one who returns!" At the end of the day, who I want to be and where I want to be in relation to my walk as a Christ follower.....this thought just keeps flooding my mind. "I want to be the one who returns!" COVID-19 has caused me to consider my identity in Christ! Take time in prayer today and just seek the Lord. What have you done during this forced "time out?" How are you spending this time?
