“Are you confused abour life, don’t know what’s going on? Come with me, oh come, have dinner with me! I’ve prepared a wonderful spread — fresh-baked bread, roast lamb, carefully selected wines. Leave your impoverished confusion and live! Walk up the  street to a life with meaning. Proverbs 9:4-6 The Message

Do you really want the Life that God offers you…?

It is right there when you wake up everyday. It goes to work with you. It is waiting for you when you come home. Life: with two real paths. One path is made with your footprints. You earn what you eat. You keep what is yours. You do your best. The other path is an invitation. You get invited to walk a path you don’t have to clear. Jesus clears the road to you and ahead of you. You get invited in your confusion and poverty. You get invited to live a life with meaning. Which Life do you really want? The world you live in deceives you to believe that Life is found by your effort .. your striving .. and your good intentions. Why do you try so hard and exhaust yourself with so much striving? The Father’s invitation is open and you are invited … The Son has cleared the road with his life … You are offered a life with meaning infused with real strength and purity. It is the Life that God wants for you today. It only takes a moment … 

“May God our Father himself and our Master Jesus clear the road to you! And may the Master pour on the love so it fills your lives and splashes over everyone around you, just as it does from us to you. May you be infused with strength and purity, filled with confidence in the presence of God our Father when our Master Jesus arrives with all his followers.” 1 Thessalonians 3:11-13 The Message

About Ken Chester

I love seeing Christ become alive and real in someone's life. It is amazing what happens when Jesus moves in and starts to renovate a life. When I'm not riding my road bike, I am usually walking our corgi named Trinity (she came that way) and corgi-lab named Lowrider. Carolyn and I are transforming our backyard. And a book is on the way. ...Stay tuned ... Ken
