Good Morning Marine!
Word for the Day:
"Who We Follow is Who We Become"
"Here we are, servants today!
And the land that You gave to our fathers,
To eat its fruit and its bounty,
Here we are, servants in it!"
Our Breakfast this morning is the confession of a broken people who have followed their enemies, that they should have conquered - and they became like them! And now, they are servants in the land that they should be Owners of!
Like the prodigal son who "came to himself," (Luke 15:17), Israel has come to this place of confession and repentance to God.
Like Israel and the prodigal son, we too are subjected to the same physical attractions of the world. However, as we keep our heart and eyes upon our Commander and King, keeping our "Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner dates with Him - we will Become Like Him.
Who You Follow is Who You Become.
As we follow Him, our love and passion for Him grows and the world loses its attraction - "and the things of earth, will grow strangely dim, in the light of His glory and grace."
We're changed from glory to glory more into His image BECAUSE we "behold the glory of the Lord,"(2Corin.3:18); ie, we follow Him - "we look full in His wonderful face...."
Yes, my fellow Warrior, keep your eyes turned upon your Commander and King Jesus!
Warrior at your side,
