I just finished the book, Prodigal God by Tim Keller and I think my take home (even though there was lots to chew on) is this: so often we obey to be accepted by God therefore thinking we deserve certain end results in our service; whereas, we are accepted by God therefore we desire to serve Him fully, no matter what the cost is or isn't. It doesn't matter because my eyes are on Him.
I see this in our service here in Jos and my heart is to be proud of my children as they are learning to serve God, but I want to always be aware of their heart and their desire to serve Jesus. "Acts" can quickly go from pure heart to no heart and just motives to certain end results. Anyway, I am glad both of my girls were participants in a "bigger" picture worship/chapel service and my prayer is that I will be able to nurture their hearts to a desire to do all things for Christ.
