“Take time to be holy, the world rushes on; Spend much time in secret, with Jesus alone. By looking to Jesus, like Him thou shalt be; Thy friends in thy conduct His likeness shall see.” The words of this old hymn remind me that to grow in relationship with Jesus takes work…hard work and sacrifice. But nothing of value comes without hard work and sacrifice. The question I ask myself is this: “Am I struggling and sacrificing for temporal or eternal things?”
