Do Your Part First … God Will Do His!

 

Do Your Part First … God Will Do His!
We go to the Lord with a list and a longing for all the things He should do for us – even those of us who are focused on things spiritual.  However, James wrote, “Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.  Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.  Lament and mourn and weep!  Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom.  Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord and He will lift you up.” (James 4:8-9)
Jesus taught that we cannot even be one of His disciples if we are not willing to leave everything to follow him.  He said, “Whoever of you does not forsake all that he has cannot be My disciple” (Luke 14:33).
Then, He will lift you up.  Would you like to study your part of the equation?  Let me know.
