Watch yourselves, that you do not lose what we have accomplished, but that you may receive a full reward. 2 John 1:8 NASB
There are few things that when left on autopilot, do well. For the most part, important things in life need attention.
This is even more true when we are talking about our spiritual life. Most people leave their spiritual life on autopilot and walk away from the cockpit only to come back when something doesn’t seem right.
John wrote that we should watch ourselves so that we receive our full reward. This means that our spiritual life needs attention! It means that we should examine where we are and not be satisfied with just bouncing along.
We need to be purposeful in pursuing Jesus!
This speaks to a life that actively seeks Him and is obedient to the Holy Spirit.
And why wouldn’t any true Believer want this? Why wouldn’t anyone who truly has turned to Jesus seek Him and obey Him with everything?
When was the last time you asked the Lord to search your heart and remove everything that isn’t from Him?
Father, I want to live the life You want for me. Help me to walk daily with purpose and desire for You.
