Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. - John 12:26, NIV
Jesus encouraged His disciples by promising, “where I am, my servant also will be.” There is nothing in this world that I desire more than the presence of Jesus in my life.
Nothing . . .
not houses or honors or health,
not cars or careers or children,
not money or marriage or ministry,
not fame or family or freedom,
not promotion or pleasures or position,
not strength or success,
not ability or achievement,
not even love or life itself.
What would it be like not to have Christ in your life? I think that it would be hell-literally.
