One Thing 7/22/12

Today is the Feast of Mary Magdelen. She is such a hero to me and to anyone who longs to live a life of lovesickness. I believe that no one ever loved Jesus more than she did. Her very first encounter with Jesus captured and captivated her heart forever. Mark 14 says that we are all to follow her example of wasting our lives on Jesus. Jesus said this is what the gospel is meant to produce, not just people praying a prayer so they won’t go to Hell one day, but a people whose hearts are so ruined by the love Of God that they want to live excessively for Him; taken away by His love. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to live a pointless life. I don’t want to waste my life, except on Jesus. I don’t want to pace myself in my life In Christ; I want to live every day wholehearted burning as a living sacrifice of love for Him.  Study her life and see if she doesn’texcite you to be extreme for Jesus.
