Today's Good News


10/17               John 21:18-19

18 “I tell you the truth, when you were young, you were able to do as you liked; you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will dress you and take you where you don’t want to go.” 19 Jesus said this to let him know by what kind of death he would glorify God. Then Jesus told him, “Follow me.”


As we live and minister it is always important to remember who we are following: Jesus.   It will be easy to keep our ego in check as long as we remember what we are doing and for whom.  I do this for Christ’s sake.  I do this for I am filled with desire to glorify the Father.  I do this because I am filled with the Holy Spirit and He compels me to share the Gospel.
