We have such a joy that many have not known, in knowing the Lord Jesus. A privilege that few can relate in serving him with our lives and a future so secure that not even death can snatch from us.
Dear Lord, forbid that we should forget what a privilege it is to know you and be called your sons.
And may this joy ever cause us to proclaim from the rooftops your saving news of which the world desperately needs to hear.
From a pragmatic point of view, there is nothing particularly special about us as to necessitate our involvement in God’s plan.
As a matter of fact it would seem unwise for God to involve sinful, faulty and mortal man in his eternal and perfect plan.
What a privilege then that we can be part of what God is doing in the world, that we can share in his concern and interest and for once be part of something that lasts?
What a privilege that as Christians we can share the saving news of Jesus to build the church and be part of God’s eternal plan to bring everything under his rule.
