What is greatness? Your book talks about good character qualities. I came to serve and be a Servant to all. I sacrificed My life for you. I was fully obedient to My Father, and He exalted Me for it. I died so that you could live. Can you serve? Can you love? Can you give? Greatness is not something to be sought after. It is recognized later.
There is a course, a way, a path to take. Can you follow My leading? My sheep know My voice.
You are thinking ahead, and this is good. I know what is ahead. Be responsible and be compassionate. Doors will open with opportunities to pass on what you know of Me. People will listen.
I am blessing what you are doing because it is what I am doing. This may start slow, but it will grow rapidly as My Spirit works in people. Prepare for new people, new hearts won over by My love and grace. Once they realize that I love them, the battle is over, the victory secured.
Reach out to those near you. Proclaim the truth. Speak life and goodness. Be positive and friendly. Pray for them.
Proclaim a fast. Call for a humbling of souls. Pride goes before a fall. Pride says I don’t need you, I’m better than you. That is not My way. Be a servant to others. Think of them as better than you. Love them into My kingdom.
Self-sufficiency is never the way for My people. I am Lord. Abide with Me and I will abide with you. Follow Me and I will guide you. Live to please Me. To love Me is to obey Me and My commands. My ways are not the ways of your world. It matters what you do and think. I will bless you with good things. I will take care of you. Trust Me. Yes, seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. My blessings will satisfy you.
Rejoice and be glad. Look for Me in your life. I care about you and what you are doing. I watch over you to accomplish My purpose for your life. Keep seeking Me for I am your Source for Life. I am your Provider and Healer.
Pray and don’t lose heart. I am listening to the prayers of My people, especially those who intercede for others. Their motives are pure.
Sometimes the truth is hard, especially without grace. I came with both. I gave promise and reality. Everyone must choose to believe in Me and to follow Me. There are no shortcuts. My arms are open for those who are seeking. You decided once and kept on deciding to follow. Tell others the truth with grace and love. Life will be hard without My intervention and help. Life will end quickly, without warning. Don’t put your hope on this life. There is a better way, but few will find it. Come, drink from the water that will bring life. Come, give your burdens to Me. Turn from your life of sin and unbelief. Allow My righteousness to cover you. Allow My death on the cross to pay your price. My sheep hear My voice, and they follow Me. I am a better way. I am the only way. Come.
