“It is so simple yet so true that intimacy with your God is to be sought above all things. Life is a race, a course set for heaven. Very few finish the race in victory. They give up along the way.
Think of this. Centuries upon centuries have elapsed, yet how many saints have been canonized? There are many unsung saints, yet there should be more people that have sought the highest calling in Christ Jesus.
It is not an easy road to take up your cross to follow in My footsteps, but the reward is beyond your comprehension. It is a daily battle of the will and the senses. You must fight manfully every day of your life because you will be inundated by distractions and sensual thinking, the senses seeking to be gratified during your earthly journey.
The ascetics have learned the secrets to holiness. They have denied their bodies to live in the Spirit’s embrace. They have lost their lives in this world to obtain an eternal inheritance, the glory of My presence eternally.
You have many friends in heaven praying for you. They want you to keep your eyes on Jesus, your Mediator. They want you to finish your course with joy, to hear My “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.”
Subdue your earthly desires. Think of heaven. All sacrifice will be worth it when you see Jesus.
“Redeem the time because the days are evil.”
