Linking Arms...

This month as we run into the arms of Jesus, let’s consider whom we might link arms with and bring to the heart of God. Is there someone in your life that needs to know the love of Jesus?

Today, I pondered what my life might have been like if someone had not cared enough to tell me about Jesus and the Cross. The very thought frightens me. I can guarantee I would not be the woman I am today. Jesus rescued me from a life of complete chaos and self-destruction.

Please read the following verses and allow them to speak to your heart.

Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I'll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age (Matthew 28:19-20 MSG)

Do you not say, 'Four months more and then the harvest'? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. (John 4:35 NIV)

However, I consider my life worth nothing to me, if only I may finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me--the task of testifying to the gospel of God's grace. (Acts 20:24 NIV)

Do you know someone who is lost in the crowd? Do you have a friend who needs you to run with them to the heart of Jesus?

Linking Arms with you,
