What You Could Be

Luke 9:23-25, NIV: Then he said to them all: "If anyone would come
after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For
whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me
will save it. What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet lose or
forfeit his very self?
Have you ever taken a good look at yourself through the eyes of God? What does
He see? He sees you where you are. He has seen what you once were, and sees who
you are today. He sees you clearly. He loves you where you are. He has always
loved you. He loved you while you were yet sinning and lost. He loved you when
you turned to Him. And He loves you still. He sees where you need to be. There
is a place God wants to take us. He desires to enable you to repent of your sin,
die daily to your selfishness, and to take up your cross daily and follow Him.
He sees your potential. He has given you a purpose and a plan to become what He
sees you to be. He has developed you specifically for a place and time where you
can be part of His plan to bring many to Jesus. Where are you today? Where could
you be a year from now? What needs to happen for you to become what God has
intended for you all along?
