do not consider yourself to be superior to those other branches. If you do, consider this: You do not support the root, but the root supports you.
Romans 11:18 NIV
There is so much in this verse!!
As we look towards 2019 and our being intentional in our walk with God, let us remember a few things….
Each one of us is different…
Our journey to our rock bottom was different, even if the struggle/addiction/sin was the same…
Our walk with God from said rock bottom is different…
And no matter how long we have been a Christian we are no better than the new Christian who just hit their knees in surrender pleading for God to intervene.
And we each must work out our own salvation and at the pace God desires.
And though we may give each other encouragement it is Jesus who gives us the strength to persevere.
May each of us be intentional in our desire to serve not only God but each other, not as a means of looker better but as a means of making the tree stronger!
