Many years ago I felt the call to missions and I told my pastor. He said there was an opening in the Missions Service Corps. He told me I would have to raise my own support so I went from church to church in our association speaking on missions and I raised my support.
They sent me to Phoenix, Arizona to the Indian Reservation. However, I only stayed two days and called my pastor and said this was not where I should be so he told me to come home.
We had Bible Stories for the children and different activities. At the end of the first day I went to the mission leader’s room and asked him what time we had devotions. He replied, “We are too tired at the end of the day and too busy at the start of the day for devotions”.
I didn’t say anything to him but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that the reason we were here was to spread the Love of Jesus. If we didn’t take time for Jesus, to talk to Him and thank Him and ask Him for help and guidance, then our labors would be in vain.
Everything that we do in life should be for Jesus. It is all about Jesus. He is the Giver and Sustainer of life. We must never forget Jesus or leave Him out of our daily lives. If we don’t receive instruction and support from Him, we will never be effective like He wants us to be for Him.
I encourage you to always remember and include Jesus in your daily activities. You will find that you will have a much better day.
