Is the life you're living worth Christ dying for?
Recently I’ve been reflecting on my life a lot and I’ve had to ask myself this question quite frequently. What is the posture of my heart? Is my heart blameless towards God? Then surely I can’t help but love His creation- yes that’s including humans even the ones that have hurt me! Do I respect myself and the value He has deposited on my insides? Do I know He lives in me? Do I know that He searches my heart and mind? Yes, even the parts that no one else can see! Do I know who I am? Do I know what He has called me to do? Do I know how He wants me to walk this out? What are my priorities? Are they aligned with His plan for my life? Do I even believe He has a plan for my life and that they are good plans, to give me hope and a future? What is the content of my soul? Do my thoughts and desires honour the God I claim to serve, know and love? Do my actions reflect Who lives on the inside of me? There’s so many more questions I use to reflect and check my heart and today I implore you to ask yourself similar questions. I implore you to do frequent heart checks- ignorance is not bliss it is just plain ignorance and God is teaching me it is not cute. If I am who I say I am- a woman that carries God’s heart everywhere I go, is this reflected in every aspect of my life? Have I been diligent enough to pay attention to the sound of His heartbeat? Who do you say you are? If so, is this the testimony of your life? Do the lives we are living reflect the price Christ paid for us on the cross? Do the lives we are living reflect that we are even conscious of the sacrifice He paid for us? Do we live like we know we are loved not just by mere man but the Creator of the Universe, the One Who formed us with the very breath in His lungs? Do we live in such a way that we are so hidden in Christ that all men see is Him? It’s not the time to condemn ourselves, but it’s the time to intentionally walk out our purposes in alignment with who God says we are and what He has called us to do “For the ways of man are directly before the eyes of the Lord, and He [Who would have us live soberly, chastely, and godly] carefully weighs all man's goings. [II Chron. 16:9; Job 31:4; 34:21; Prov. 15:3; Jer. 16:17; Hos. 7:2; Heb. 4:13.]” Proverbs 5:21 AMPC
