How much baggage do you bring
when you serve the Lord?
Years of fears, years of pain, years of hurts....
and you wonder why serving Him
seems impossible sometimes.
You are weighed down by your own luggage.
Your thoughts are in the right place,
but you physically can not carry
all the baggage and serve Him freely.
John, who was no Bible scholar,
had no college degree,
listened to his heart
and knew there was something about
this man called Jesus
that he wanted to be a part of,
have a relationship with.
John chose to serve Jesus freely
by leaving his baggage behind
to focus only on Jesus.
His load became joy.
Joy in just being with Jesus.
Remember the Holy Spirit is our helper;
we must pray for His help
to be freed of all this baggage.
