Life gets in the way sometimes...

Why does life sometimes get in the way from us doing things we want to do.  Of course...it's priorities. Yes, I could write a blog daily, or even weekly, but my priorities are so out of whack right now. 

I have been thinking a lot about the gospel.  The reason that we were created is to bring glory to God and tell others about the gospel.  The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus.  Why is it that we, Christians, get distracted by the morals and values of the world and how they are so off track.  Instead of looking at the sins of the world, we should love them to Jesus.  Show them how Jesus loves them and died for their sins.  

I work with a group of people.  I am the minority.  I'm a believer.  I read my bible, go to church, live daily to try to please the Lord...not because I'm better than them, but because I want to serve Jesus, who died for me.  I have developed a friendship with these people.  Most of them know what I don't do, but I think they miss why I live my life.  I want to work on showing them why I'm a follower of Jesus.  Because He gave His life for me.  Paid my debt, took my place.  

Please pray with me, that I can show them Jesus' love and why I am attempting to live my life to please Jesus.
