“Through him we received both the generous gift of his life and the urgent task of passing it on to others who receive it by entering into obedient trust in Jesus. You are who you are through this gift and call of Jesus Christ.” Romans 1:5-6 The Message
Are you letting Him take you by the hand…?
You’ve been called to a generous life … a radical life-change … that is only found in the One named Jesus. He not only wants to call you into this life … He really wants to take you by the hand and lead you. He already knows that on your own .. your best of intentions you will get you lost … worn out … turn away … or just settle for a half-life with His name on it. The Life-Changing One is not soft … He has called you and is leading you into a deliberate … demanding … and sometimes difficult path. He knows the path you are on today. He knows every turn … dip … hole … flat spot … and smooth places you will walk on today. Once you take Him by the hand to lead you … you will find an urgency … a deep and abiding urgency to pass this life along to others in your world. God’s urgency carries His wholeness … His love … His life … His peace into all of the places of your life … past — present — future. Are you letting Him take you by the hand today? He is not going to force you. His grip is firm and freeing. It only takes a moment …
“God is kind, but he’s not soft. In kindness he takes us firmly by the hand and leads us into a radical life-change.” Romans 2:4 The Message
