Words from Max Lucado, one of my favorite writers and teachers.
Max said......If we are not teaching people how to be saved, it is perhaps we have forgotten the tragedy of being lost! If we're not teaching the message of forgiveness, it may be because we don't remember what it was like to be guilty. If we aren't preaching the cross, it could be that we've subconsciously decided that---God forbid---somehow we don't need it.
Before you remember anything, remember Him. If you forget anything, don't let it be Him. Oh how quickly we forget. So much happiness through the years, So many changes within. So many alterations without. And somewhere...back there....we leave Him. We don't turn away from Him...we just don't take him with us.
Assignments come. Promotions come, Budgets are made. Kids are born, and the Christ.....is forgotten.
Paul said "don't forget Christ".
Do yourself a favor. Stand before Him again. Or better yet, allow Him to stand before you! Go to the upper room and wait until He comes. And when he appears, don't leave.
Those same eyes that melted the gates of hell and sent the demons scurrying, and Satan running.
Look at Him....look at his eyes....You will never be the same!
