Where Do You Aim?

bowandarrowWhere is that which the true follower of Christ aims? Ellen Write wrote in Testimonies Volume 1 page 160

“Those who feel the constraining love of God do not ask how little may be given in order to obtain the heavenly reward; they ask not for the lowest standard, but aim at perfect conformity to the will of their Redeemer.”

Where are you shooting? Are you attempting to simply do the bare minimal that is requried of us as Christians? What does that say about our motivations? What does it say about our love for God? You may fail at times, you may make mistakes here and there, but the true follower of God has one goal which is to represent the master in their daily lives. Will we allow ourselves to be conformed to this world (Romans 12:2) and shoot for the bare minimum for salvation, or will we allow Jesus to finish the work that He has begun?(Phillipians 1:6)
