I will rise…rise with me

Twenty years ago, Jesus saved my life.  My life is His and I will rise…rise with me.

      It is another great song by Chris Tomlin! I can’t think of one that expresses my sentiment this week as I reflect over the last 20 years. So many failures on my part – so much faithfulness on Jesus’ part. I just want others to be able to experience the life that He offers – without me getting in the way. As John the Baptist said in John 3:30 “He must increase, and I must decrease.” I want so much more of Him and so much less of me. Less of my lesser desires, less of my sinful pride, less of everything short of His glory. More of His compassion, more of His humility, more of His Kingdom vision. The great thing is – He took all of me to the cross! And as He rose – so shall I…more like Him everyday until that final day. His word is true: He who began a good work in me IS faithful to complete it.
