HAVE WE DONE OUR BEST
“We know that we have passed from death unto life, because we love the brethren. He that loveth not his brother abideth in death. Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer: and ye know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him. Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.”
1 John 3:14-16 KJV
Ensign Edwin Young wrote a beautiful hymn “Have I Done My Best For Jesus”. “I wonder have I done my best for Jesus, Who died upon the cruel tree? To think of His great sacrifice at
Calvary! I know my Lord expects the best from
me.” Have we done our best for
Jesus? Every Christian has to answer
If Jesus comes back for us today, are we ready to meet Him? Are we doing our best for Jesus? Do we love one another unconditionally as He loves us? May God have mercy on us if we are hurting Jesus because we aren’t loving one another as He has commanded us to love one another.
Doing our best for Jesus means we will have to shut off the television, get out of our comfort zone and go tell everyone we see that Jesus loves them unconditionally. After all that Jesus has done for us, we should do everything we can do to make Him happy. If ever someone deserves to be happy, it is Jesus.
Heavenly Father, there are times when all of us fail Jesus and hurt Him. Please forgive us and put a desire deep in our heart to go and tell others of His unconditional love. Thank You, dear Father, for the privilege You have given me these last ten years to serve Him. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
