It’s life-changing …

January 2, 2012

“ writing to those loved by God the Father, called and kept safe by Jesus Christ.” Jude 1 The Message

You’ve been “entrusted” with a life-changing truth: eternal life is found in Jesus Christ … by faith. You didn’t find this faith. God found you and gave you the ability .. the power .. and the grace to receive this “once for all faith’ in Christ. But God being God knows how long it takes us to really begin to live in this faith and build our lives upon His life. There are some .. a few really .. who are all in at the beginning. Most of us slowly .. gradually .. and even painfully let go of this world to be grasped by the world of grace that is ours in Jesus. Even at this moment your life is “kept safe” in Christ while you live in a very unsafe world. And you’ve been “entrusted” with God’s serious business of sharing this faith .. passing it along .. standing your ground .. and graciously and generously giving it away. And this faith entrusted to you is nothing less than the life-changing message of Jesus Christ. You’re not meant to be offensive .. insulting .. or isolating. You’re called to walk in the light of His indefatigable grace for you and step right into the world you live in everyday. God’s going to do His work through you. Your part…? You’ve been entrusted with this faith to grow in .. walk in .. and be loved by God the Father in every room and corner of your life. You can’t hide that kind of faith and you can’t live it alone. But you can begin … and it only takes a moment …

“.. that you fight with everything you have in you for this faith entrusted to us as a gift to guard and cherish.” Jude 3 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
