Being a part of the Christian family is not a decision to be taken lightly. When Ruth decided to make being a part of God’s family official she had probably been observing them for a while; she knew what she was getting into.
Ruth was making a journey, sacrificing the comforts of a known home, she was prepared to forsake her natural family and be adopted by another; she would have no other God, but Jehovah!
Do you share that same conviction? You must if you desire to join God’s family “Jesus replied, “No one who puts a hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.””
Luke 9:62 NIV
Think About This
Do you really want to take up the cross?
Dear Lord, I acknowledge that being a Christian is not a romantic notion and requires deep thought and consideration. I know what I am getting into and I am truly grateful that You want me to be part of Your family. Amen
