Way to Wholeness

Luke 21:17-19
“You will be hated by all because of my name, but not a hair on your head will be destroyed. By your perseverance you will secure your lives.”

Jesus promised His followers that they would be persecuted. But He also promised that if you persevere in following Him…you will “secure your lives.” I believe that means that as you follow Jesus in His example of letting go of things that don’t last and use your gifts and talents to make the world a more loving, merciful, forgiving, compassionate and just place…you will be in the process of becoming whole…the unique person (true self) that God created you to be. It’s the only path to inner peace and joy…to becoming fully alive as Christ lives fully in us. That is something to truly be thankful for!

Suggested song of the day– “Give Praise and Thanks” on the Give Praise and Thanks album.
