Our world has become so independent and isolated, to the point that human contact is almost irrelevant, relationships are welcome but not necessarily needed. Religious beliefs are considered a good thing morally but not really effecting the lives of the people who believe. It seems as through the advancements of medicine, engineering and medicine we have developed a go-at-it-alone culture, where we only depend on our-self. However the truth of the matter is that in life we need the help of others and especially the help of God. Our Christian journey is a race that we can not win alone, so today know that God has placed people and entities all around you to enable you along the road. All we need to do is ask, God! Today ask God for help along the way. Lets look to Paul for our scripture for reflection this morning:
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the sharing of his sufferings by becoming like him in his death, if somehow I may attain the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained this or have already reached the goal; but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Beloved, I do not consider that I have made it my own; but this one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the heavenly call of God in Christ Jesus.
Friends, press on today. As you press on toward your goals know that you can't survive alone so ASK GOD for HELP! Ask God to send you help along your way.
Merciful God today our prayer is simple we just ask that you send us help along our journey. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
