You In The Back…Come Forward
"So the last will be first, and the first will be last." --- Matthew 20:16

There is only one person who can hold you back from walking in the light of Jesus Christ. You do everything with that person…eat, sleep, work, play, talk, cry, sin… Yes, you are the one who decides whether you will pursue Jesus or hide in order to keep His Light from shining on your baggage. You are the one who sits in the back holding the weight of your past on your lap, so you won't be able to get up and walk toward the Light that beckons you to come. You are the one whose focus on Jesus is distracted by the appearance of everyone else around and in front of you. Why don't  you stop suppressing that inner nudge that urges you to step into His enveloping love?  It's past time that you know for yourself that your faults only have your permission to encumber you from being set free in your Savior! Jesus went to Calvary and paid full price for you! He sees you every time you position yourself far away from Him. Stop holding yourself back. Give yourself permission to embark on a fresh start in Jesus Christ. Look up and look ahead of you. Jesus has cleared a path for you,  and He is saying, "You in the back...come forward."
