I was reminded today of our excess in this country. Our excess of stuff. I was helping pack some items for a missions trip to Haiti and when I looked around the room at all of the stuff people have donated, it hit me: this is our excess. We can send this stuff because have just.so.much.
More than the excess of stuff, I thought about how amazing it would be if we had an excess of Jesus. If our homes were overflowing with Him as much as they were with material items. If our lives were so filled up with Him, that we were overflowing with an excess amount of Jesus to give to others. Like we were giving to Haiti.
An excess of Jesus.
I want that.
I want to have so much of Him in my life that He spills out into all I do-that I can give and give and give because His supply never runs out. Wouldn’t it be wonderful?
Yet, I am just like many. I have too much stuff that means nothing for eternity. Not enough of the stuff that matters.
How about you? Do you have an excess of Him?
