Wise Words for Today

How we view God dramatically affects who we become. How we understand God to work directly affects the life we live in God. Even the subtle shift from receiving Jesus to following Jesus is significant. The first allows us to remain stationary as God comes to us; the second demands our moving with God. When Jesus walked this earth, His disciples had to keep up with Him. If they were to stay close, they had to choose to leave the life they lived without Him and go wherever He would go…..The path is thick with mystery, danger, and the unknown. The quest is to live the life God created you to experience. The journey begins right now – in this moment. And whatever you do, don’t underestimate what you may find.
