I'm going to have to admit something. I love the Left Behind Series. Some of you, well since there's only three followers, I'm pretty sure it's going to be all of you, may be shocked. I've read every single one of them and have listened to the audio presentation at least twice.
I know it's fiction, but there just something about the stories of faith. I often think of how wonderful it would be to be able to live out a faith like that. The stories of the men and women in these books hungering for the Word of God, and being driven to their knees in constant prayer. I love it when someone in the stories realizes their need for Jesus and gives their lives over to Him.
These stories happen in real life everyday, but somehow I feel like I miss the mark. I love Jesus, and I love His word. Lately it has been very exciting to me to read and study. But the consistencey eludes me. I would love to be in it every day, but sometimes I have to settle for three of four times a week. I want that relationship with Christ that will inspire others to seek it, to want it, to covet it. If there were anything in life we should covet it is that relationship with Christ.
Our Sunday School class has agreed to pray for each other, but specifically a prayer from Colossians 1:9-12
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God. May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy, giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. ESV
I would like to pray this for you, and hopefully you will pray it for me. Leave me a comment asking me to pray and I will, right then and there.
In His Name.
