Greet Ampliatus, my beloved in the Lord.
Have you ever thought about how you have been described to somebody? Even better, how have you been described as a Christian? Gives you something to think about doesn't it? We all want to be known as "My Beloved in the Lord", but what else can be said of you. Are you faithful to follow him, or just when it is convenient? Are you a studier of His word, or just when you see the Bible laying around you pick it up? Are you a worshiper, or do you just worship when you go to church on Sunday?
We can be all of these, but yes it takes commitment. Is it easy? Not always, but learning to be consistent is a start. They say it takes from 21-28 days to form a habit. So take time to form a new habit, spending time with Christ, so that you can be described in God's eyes as "My beloved in the Lord". Beloved means: greatly loved; dear to the heart.
