I love Jesus and the privilege He gives us in winning souls!

Amen! There is no greater joy than to see a heart open to the truth of the loveliness of Jesus! This is our joy as it was our Saviors as He walked upon this Earth.

As much as Jesus loved this young ruler and saw in him such valuable traits for His kingdom He could not accept even 99% of his heart. What a lesson for us today.

Amen! If the whole heart is not given, then we remain in our fallen condition which is selfish. The heart must be made new. The rich young ruler thought he was keeping the commandments, but if he was not fully surrendered, he could not  keep any of them. It is the motive that must be right.

If our church members were to experience the joy of finding lost sheep, they would not want the world. This is a reward we get in this world! WE don't have to wait for heaven!!

The joy of seeing souls redeemed, souls eternally saved, is the reward of all that put their feet in the footprints of Him who said, "Follow Me." 
Jesus receives His reward when we reflect His character, the fruits of the Spirit......We deny Jesus His reward when we do not.
