Living as if...

I wonder if we do live our lives ready at any moment to go where God wants us? I wonder if deep down we long for the comforts of familiarity and disguise it with work schedules, age, personality makeups, or whatever?

I wonder when we get to end of our days if it will be marked only by a western mindset, when heaven will be loaded with many other mindsets? I wonder if we have shortchanged who God wants us to be, by a cumbersome load of stuff, possessions and attachments?

I wonder if truth be known, we really do make time for what we want, and not what God had intended? I wonder if God sees us willing and ready to go when he calls us to go?

I wonder how many of us have a passport in our possession so that we can go, if God tugs at our heart to do so? I wonder how many of us have gone? I wonder who is the last person we have actually told the good news to?I wonder?

1 Peter 3:15 But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have

"I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God for the salvation of everyone who believes"

Something I am trying to remind myself constantly these days.
