We always hear the phrase “one step at a time” or  “one day at a time”. It isn’t a phrase we really like to hear because we would really rather it be “NOW”. 

If you look at the life Jesus led, do you ever wonder if He just wanted to get His death completed so that He could return to His Father? We notice with God, from the very beginning that there were always steps that HAD to be taken. Steps in creation and yes, steps to the cross. 

It was literally “one step or one day at a time”. 



“Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not. 

I can’t imagine what it would be like to hear the God Almighty to say “I know you not”. But what if He says to us instead, “I know you but I am not happy with how you spent the life I gave you.”

It made me stop in my thoughts. 

Disappointing my Father on earth is hard enough, but disappointing my Father above?
