Read Galatians 6, Psalm 40
A “Person of Interest”
“But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” Matthew 10:30-31
“Person of interest” has come to enjoy wide usage to describe suspects or potential suspects in crime investigations.
Beyond crime investigations we all have, are, or will become “persons of interest.”
We all have or have had parents, spouses, family, friends, preachers, teachers, and stars of TV, movies, or sports who are “persons of interest” to us. When we are attracted to someone of the opposite sex, they become “persons of interest.”
When someone becomes a “person of interest,” we are interested in everything about them. As we grow in our relationship with them, we get to know them better by learning more about them.
We need to know that we became a “person of interest” to God long before we were ever born. God knew our name before we were ever conceived. He is interested in everything we do in this life He has given us and has made great plans for us if we will only receive His gracious gift of eternal life, and trust and obey Him.
The key to a happy life now and forever is in making Jesus Christ the “person of interest” around who we build and live our lives. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, and no good thing will God withhold from those who make Him their “person of interest.”
When we become interested enough to learn what he did and said, we will learn what we should be doing and saying.
Our first lesson should be to love God as He did. Secondly we should love others and make everyone God puts across our path a “person of interest” as we reflect God’s love to them.
Father, thank You for making me a “person of interest” to You. By the power of Your Spirit, help me to make Jesus the primary “person of interest” in my life. . In Jesus’ name, Amen
