The truth is Christianity is utterly useless if all it becomes for us is some club or label.
Christianity is disruptive, difficult and at times, incredibly painful. But it is also an extraordinary source of love, healing, and acceptance. As Psalm 94:18-19 reads, ‘When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your love, O Lord, supported me. When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.’
Christianity afflicts the comfortable and comforts the afflicted. There is nothing normal about being a Christian.
For me, being a Christian is a moment by moment experience. As much as I can, I try to think about my faith each moment. I ask myself often, ‘What is the Godly action to do right now?’ I work hard to overcome my human impulse: my pride, my sin. I recall often that I am not alone, for God journeys with me.
I want to be all that God has created me to become. Focused as much as I am able on His will, expressing as much as I can His love with those I encounter.
I want to recognize constantly, how much He blesses me and how I might bless others.
So how might I bless you today?
