Our society loves comfort, money, entertainment and material things;they can consume everything we do.
Why do we so easily forget that we are:
We are all of the above things and more because of Christ's death and resurrection. It is because of him that we can know without a doubt that we will spend eternity with him if we live for him. While we are on earth we are not to be building our material kingdoms but to be giving our lives to bring glory to God through the way we live. We can have all the riches in the world but we can bring any of these things to heaven when we die. They are earthly things given to us to be used to serve and care for others.
"He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." Jim Elliot
It is because I am:
Rich (I live in Canada!)
that I want to adopt a child who does not know
what it is to be cared for, loved, redeemed etc.
I know that it is not going to be an easy, bump free
journey but I also believe with all that I am that God
has called me to walk down this road.
He is faithful and will provide amidst the sunny and stormy days.
May his name alone be glorified throughout this journey
to redeeming a child from a place where we would never
want to spend our days; let alone our whole lives.
