It's Friday

On the way.  It's Friday.  When we think of Friday we usually rejoice that the weekend is here.  Relaxation is on the way!  What are we going to do?  Who will we spend time with and what will I do for me?

But what does it mean to be living a life that is on the way to Christ?  Do we remember Him on Friday?  And what HE did for us, for me?  Do I think of what I can do today for Him instead of for myself?

Each one of us longs for more and over a weekend there may be different ways we 'fill' this longing.  Many of them leave us yet more empty.  Only the ONE Who gave everything - His life poured out on the Cross - can fill and satisfy this longing with His love.  He will not leave us empty but remain with us.

Let us begin the weekend with seeking Him.  Let us remain with Him on His way of the Cross which is our way as well.  In walking with Him we can encounter His love and be transformed from being selfish to generous.  Remaining with Him will bring us life and the true relaxation - renewal - that we desire.
