I don’t want to just live my life. I want to live my life for Jesus. It’s so easy to get caught up in the flow of day to day activities and cultural expectations. But if we live our lives like everyone else, we will have missed the point and wasted the years given to us by our Creator. Life for followers of Christ should be so much more than working in our jobs and hanging out with friends and family.
If we do those things without an eye towards building God’s Kingdom, then we are no different from those without Christ. Our lives must be different. You can not encounter the God of the universe and come away unchanged. If you have surrendered your life to Jesus, you are no longer your own. You are no longer like everyone else.
