“We take our lead from Christ, who is the source of everything we do. He keeps us in step with each other. His very breath and blood flow through us, nourishing us so that we will grow up healthy in God, robust in love.” Ephesians 4:15-16 The Message
What difference does your life make as a Christ-Follower…?
Everything! Jesus is to be the Lead and Source of everything about your life. He is the Connector who holds us together in fellowship … in family … and with each other today. His life is our very nourishment. Our health is the Love of Christ … the only real healing for the world we live in. Your life has a real mission … a life changing mission. It really is an easy and simple mission: You are to live and tell others of the “night-and-day difference” Christ has made in your life. You are to tell others how your life was changed from “nothing to something”. You have the easiest job on earth today: To simply live as one who has been absolutely “accepted” by God. That’s all you have to do today. You don’t have to worry about anything. You simply share with others in the world you live in what Christ has done in your life. How do you do it? You don’t. You ask Jesus to do this in you and through you. That’s where you start. And then … you simply start sharing the most powerful life-changing story on earth. And He will do the rest. So … what difference does your life make today? … Everything to someone. It only takes a moment…
“But you are the ones chosen by God, chosen for the high calling of priestly work, chosen to be a holy people, God’s instruments to do his work an speak out for him, to tell others of the night-and-day difference he made for you — from nothing to something, from rejected to accepted.” 1 Peter 2:9-10 The Message
