Levitra, or Cialis!!!  Don't worry, it is rated PG and will be a great
Devotional for men (and women) of ALL ages.

Pleasing God and making our life matter.  We often get so caught up in
living our lives day to day, it is easy to forget why God has given us this
wonderful gift of life.  It is to serve and glorify Him.  That is the bottom
line of why we are here.  Unfortunately, we can get far, far away from that
purpose during the course of our years here on earth.  Obviously, one of the
enemy's goals is to keep us distracted so that we cannot fulfill
that God-given purpose.

Once a person comes to know Christ by faith, the enemy has lost the battle
for that person's soul.  However, the battle then centers around making us
as ineffective as possible in serving God in our daily lives.  The more he
can keep us distracted with the burdens of life, the less effective we are
in our service to God.

This passage of scripture in Isaiah helps us to focus on what this life is
really all about.  It is not about seeing how much wealth we can accumulate
in this life, or how much power we can acquire, or how well-known we can
become.  All of the things the world judges us by are absolutely meaningless
when this brief journey is over.  It is the wood, hay, and stubble the Bible
talks about that will burn up when tested by fire (1 Corinthians 3:12-15).

*The gold, silver, and precious stones are those things we do in this life
that stand the test of eternity.  It is our true service to our Lord.

If you want a starting point of how to please God, what kinds of things we
can do in our life to follow our Lord and have an eternal legacy, get your
Bible out and read verse 7 in the 58th chapter of Isaiah.  This is what our
life really is all about.  Being there for those in need.  Helping those who
are lost in this life.  Sharing the love and hope of Jesus Christ with those
we meet along our journey.

I love you and care about you so much.  One of the questions I get every day
is how to be in the will of God.  There are so many passages in the Word of
God that help us know what we can do in our life to be in the will of God.
This verse in Isaiah is a great place to start.

I will be praying with you today that the Lord helps you to realize no
matter what problems you are facing, no matter how many obstacles there
might be this very moment, there are always others who are in worse shape,
always others who are struggling even more than you are.  We have a
responsibility to be an ambassador for
Christ in our daily lives.  This is how we fulfill our purpose in life.

My challenge to you today is to be aware that there is an enemy out there
who will try everything possible to distract you from fulfilling your
God-given purpose.  Be aware of this trap.  Rise above it no matter what you
may be dealing with and find ways each day to share the hope and love of
Christ with someone.  God did not place people in your life, in your path
each day by accident.  It is your opportunity to serve Him, and lay up
treasures in heaven for eternity as opposed to focusing on the treasures of
this life that will all one day pass away.

The goal of every child of God should be to please HIM, and let God use our
lives to make a difference for HIS Kingdom!

In His love and service,
Your friend and brother in Christ,
Bill Keller
