Any time our main goal in life is to just pay bills, or stay healthy we are in survival mode. Jesus came to offer abundant life. That’s not the lifestyle marked by life changing transformation. All to often I find myself in that lifestyle, unfortunately. We have to seriously consider what we are doing, what are we living for? If we could plot our path on a straight course, in four years who would we be like? Survivalists? or Jesus? I want to be like Jesus, but in order to do that, I am going to have to unlearn the patterns of the world. We must embrace the lifestyle of Jesus, and actually trust him. Move out of our comfort and being content with the way things are and expect more. Approach the throne of grace with confidence and lay before him our life.
