30“Anyone who isn’t with me opposes me, and anyone who isn’t working with me is actually working against me.
What a scary quote! If I am not actively working with Jesus, I am working against Him. How often haven’t I passed up the chance to do a good deed? How many times have I not given to the poor as much as I should have? How often have I not spoken the kind word to someone because I thought I would have been embarrassed? In all those times, I was opposing my Lord and Savior.
And notice that it says work “with” Jesus. It doesn’t say work for him. I can’t do anything alone and neither can you. I need to be walking in step with the Lord, doing what he wants me to do, with Him empowering me and working with me.
Please forgive me Lord. Please inspire me again. I’m sure I will fail some times, but I will try to fail so much less. Help me to work WITH You Jesus. Keep me on Your path, not mine. Beginner’s Online Bible Study *obbs*
