Sometimes, we experience motivational lapses regarding our call to serve God by forgiving others, giving to others, praying for others, attending church, reading the Bible, etc..

The grind of daily living just seems to shove its way to the front of the line and the next thing you know, our faith seems to take a back seat.

There’s a verse in Psalm 103 that can awaken our sense of spiritual perspective, though.

“As far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” Psalm 103:12

Listen, no matter how much persuasion Satan seeks to subtly send our way about putting ourselves before others — particularly God — we simply have to remember that God and His Son Jesus Christ put us first when Jesus went to the cross.

The fact that Jesus atoned for our sins when He stretched out His arms on the cross should provide more than enough motivation to stretch our “want to serve” moments into a “need to serve” philosophy for living.

I will never be able to adequately compensate Jesus Christ for what He did for me.

That fact alone provides all the compulsion I need to do all that I can for Him.

I pray that you will believe the same.

As always, I love you
