I had the priviledge of praying with a sweet friend today as she turned her life over to Christ. The prayers, tears and hugs filled me with joy. During service today we were reminded of a quote by Max Lucado, "The soldiers at the cross were unnecessary, Jesus would have nailed himself to the cross for us." Sobering reminder that I can do nothing to earn my salvation. Jesus chose to come because of me. He chose to come because of you. He tells us to go and make disciples. To reach those who are hurting and shine the light of Jesus in the midst of their pain. To step out of our comfortable and step into the brokenness of the world. The question "Who are you discipling?" was posed to us in church today. Uncomfortable silence filled the room. The joy I felt over my friend was just a small fraction of the celebration in Heaven over her decision. I want to be celebrating with heaven again and again so I will go and make disciples. Let the celebrations begin!
