Some of the trees are finally turning fall colors.
The air has even become cooler and I have gone to wearing a jacket when I am out at night.
The change is a welcome one for me.
In an unusual, silent conversation, the change of the season speaks to me, hinting that I, too, can change, when it’s time.
Lately, my concern for the salvation of others has been heightened.
Someone who had a direct influence on the life of my family died recently.
As far as I know, this person was not a believer in Jesus.
The realization of that fact has left me solemn and thoughtful.
How can I reach into another’s life and tell them what God has done?
I feel an urgency to do more—so much more—for spreading the gospel.
Many things that used to seem so important to me are now fading in their significance.
Things of God are becoming more clear and in focus.
Knowing God is the most valuable relationship that anyone can have.
I want to change.
I want to care more about other people.
How about you?
Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world—the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does—comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.—I John 2:15-17
