Thought of the Day !!

Philip went to look for Nathanael and told him, "We have found the very person Moses and the prophets wrote about! His name is Jesus, the son of Joseph from Nazareth."
                                        John 1:45 (NLT)

Jesus has issued the call to Philip to become a disciple.  What's the first thing that Philip does after this?  He runs and tells his friend Nathanael the good news.  Can you hear the excitement in Philip's voice as he proclaims that he's found the one they've all been waiting on?  He's excited because he's met Jesus.

Imagine yourself in a prison somewhere halfway across the world after being sentenced to death and waiting for it to come at any moment.  Now imagine how excited you would be when the Navy Seal team shows up and tells you that they are there to save you.  I imagine you'd be pretty excited. 

Yet Jesus has done just that.  He's saved us from eternal death.  How excited are we about that?  Maybe you wake up every morning excited about Jesus and what He's done for you.  Maybe you once were, but have become complacent.  I don't know about you, but daily I seem to see unexcited Christians walking this earth who not only aren't excited about Christ, but also hardly ever even mention His name. 

How will the world know the Good News if the ones who supposedly have it aren't even excited about it?  Get excited about Jesus today.  Show others this excitement.  And it just might spread.

In the love of Christ,
