Sometimes, we get so caught up in ministry busyness that we forget about the most important thing – spending quality time with Jesus. Don’t let the work of the ministry overshadow your relationship with God. Remember, no amount of work can save your soul or substitute for quality time with Jesus. Your savior wants to KNOW you. That can only happen if you spend time with him. In this monologue, Arletia Mayfield dramatizes how we can miss out on what’s truly important, even when we think we are doing a good work for the Lord.
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity. Matthew 7:21-23
